I wonder what happens if I run tar -cf idk.tar /dev/null
@twann the easiest way is probably too try it out 😁
@Johann150 it scares me 😂
@twann VM is starting, please stand by
@Johann150 here is the result, you were right @alexbuzzbee
@twann @Johann150 I love when things work in ways that make sense.
@alexbuzzbee @twann @Johann150 since you guys are done with /dev/null, time to try with /dev/urandom 😂
@menelkir @twann @Johann150 Files that read forever are not a great idea for this... 😬
@menelkir @alexbuzzbee @Johann150 it does the exact same thing except the file in the archive is called "urandom" and not "null"
