Nice output so far. I like seeing all these examples Polytropon's to be 

Here is another one for you that is a little unique that you might not see 
on every computer out there.

Integer Sequences database located here:
fetch http://www.research.att.com/~njas/sequences/stripped.gz

Put some real previous work back to work!. ;)

sed & awk that file to your liking to change commas spaces or such around 
so it can be spilled out to a terminal then toil the end result with the 
something like the following.

# For bourne style shells.
for line in `zcat stripped.gz`; do echo $line && sleep .02 ;done

The above command on that file will show you the reason why some awk'ing 
might be needed but that's up to you.

Best of luck.
