I’ve been trying to get this goddamned script to run and I can’t do it and I’m sure it’s something dumb that I’m doing or not doing and that if one of you wants to send me some directions for a Mac I’ll get that shit running lickety split.
Anyway, as Eric Cartman would say, screw you guys, I’m going to bed. But I’ll try again tomorrow after the two, yes two, kids’ fairs we’ll be attending. Love ya bye.
I don’t use the command line much either. Here’s how it worked on my Mac:
1. Save the file on your desktop.
2. Open Applications—>Utilities—>Terminal.
3. In Terminal, enter “cd Desktop”
4. Then enter “perl faves.pl”
If that works, it now wants your Twitter username, the rest is self-explanatory.
Whenever I realize how much I — a self-styled “technologist” — rely on other people’s tutorials, I mentally paraphrase my favorite line from my favorite Flannery O’Connor story.
He would of been a good nerd if it had been somebody there to copy from every minute of his life.
