Anyone of a certain age will know what it means when someone coyly says “ah, ah, ah… you didn’t say the magic word”. Wayne Knight, who went on to play Newman on Seinfeld, may have originally been recognizable to us as Dennis Nedry from Jurassic Park. The enterprising scientist, who tried to steal Dinosaur DNA and proved the movie’s protagonist, has now been memorialized in a whole new way.
The Unix-based system Nedry used has been uploaded to the web. Hideous to our eyes in 2014, the system will immediately prove recognizable to anyone who has seen the movie far too much, or just has a keen eye for OS use on the big screen.
Taking you right into his frame, JurassicSystems.com is a fun way to re-live part of movie history. If you pay close attention to the video preview, it shows you just how to get the Elvis-impersonator Nedry on the screen. Of course, if you’re polite enough, you can get in.
There are a few outcomes, but we’ll leave it to you to find them. We will say… and we can’t stress this enough…
Don’t forget the magic word.
