xkcdfools: Mock a UNIX terminal in jQuery

As seen on xkcd’s awesome April Fool’s homepage, xkcdfools is a mock terminal client written in jQuery. Many familiar commands are supported:

guest@xkcd:/$ ls
welcome.txt
license.txt
blag/
blog/
fora/
forums/
store/
about/

Terminal history works by hitting the up arrow, and there are even some funny Easter eggs included as well including:

guest@xkcd:/$ whoami

You are Richard Stallman.
guest@xkcd:/$

as well as the famous Konami code (↑, ↑, ↓, ↓, ←, →, ←, →, B, A). Woot!
