congratulations, you've just mentioned reason #738 for using sudo!
for a prize, you win this secion of a random bit of shell history!
sudo vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf; sudo service httpd reload
look kids, oodles of keystrokes saved and no mouse!
ps if you use zsh you can have it present bang commands like those above
on the command line before executing them so you can check or change
them. hitting return a second time will run them. i don't think bash
and tcsh offer this, but check you friendly neighbourhood man page.
kevin at ie.suberic.net dante hicks: but you hate people.
fork()'ed on 37058400 randal graves: yes, but i love gatherings.
meatspace place: home isn't it ironic?
