This is very frustrating.

I understand that we need to type in the UNIX command to the calendar textbox.

I've tried many basic UNIX commands. All I get is a blank web page. The only time i get content on a web page is when i type years i.e. 2008.

Help.

Nevermind! I just got it!

Thank god...

Here's another hint guys:

when you press the view button, this is the equivalent to using the cal command.

this is no spoiler folks, they say it on the challenged in a poor grammatical structure "In other unrelated news, Sam has set up a script that returns the output from the UNIX cal command. Here is the script:"

finally did it. Never would have gotten it if it wasn't for a huge spoiler someone put that I guess is alright to mention(starting with ';'). I guess the reason it works is because it makes the program think it's finished with that line of code, and now starting a new set of instructions after the ';'? If that is the case, none of the hints really hint at it.

Michael pretty much gave it away completely. I had no clue how to do it, but after looking at his response I got it easily.

Don't know if this is spoiling too much...you need to find a command that gives you a list of the files. For those of you who are just getting a blank page, think of it this way: when you hit the 'view' button, it is the equivalent of running the cal command, so you need to make it so that when you hit the 'view' button, it runs the cal command AND your command all at once. Once you have your list of files, you should be able to find what you need.

Ok, finding which command is half of the battle. Now, you have to figure out how to use 2 commands in the same line (one for the cal command, and one for your command).
