Prototyping and programming were slightly destroying my brain during this workshop. I tried to figure out what Terminal [1] and Python [2] were about. I tried and played with coding but most of the time the only replies these programmes gave me, were errors. Frustrating! But I turned this frustration around and started to collect all my errors. Together with this, I also collected all sort of questions I wanted to ask these programmes, accompanied by some random questions that were going through my mind at that time.

The result is a conversation between a human being (called "Echo") and a computer programme (called "-bash"). Echo keeps on asking -bash questions. -bash gives answers in the form of errors. Frustrating! In space, the conversation is accompanied by a really irritating sound, that is played everytime that -bash answers by giving an error. You are free to use the code that is written for this conversation!
