Linux The Linux desktop has come a long, long way, but there are still times when I have to use the command line. (I am a hardcore user, after all.) But even though I'm used to typing, spending hours upon hours with my fingers at the keyboard, I still grow tired of typing the same commands over and over. To reduce that tedium, I always add aliases to my .bashrc file.

I have a lot of aliases to cd to specific directions. I also have:

# Can't even remember what it all does. N is probably line numbers
alias less='less -x4 -R -N'

# Needs 256color support in the terminal
PSCOLOR="214" # or another color, each server i use has a different color
export PS1="\033[38;5;${PSCOLOR}m\h\033[38;5;231m:\033[38;5;${PSCOLOR}m w\n\033[38;5;231m#\033[0m "

I also have a bunch on my .vimrc as well..
