My Ever-Evolving Bash Profile

By | November 13, 2011

Please feel free to experiment with the following ~/.bash_profile goodness of my own, and save away to yours what tasty morsels that you find useful.

Exactly what each line does below is left as an exercise to the reader 😉 but to summarize— these aliases speed up common tasks, keep embedded timestamps in your history, offer shortcuts to longer-but-often-useful command sequences, highlight your command prompt, and enable colorful output for frequently used commands like grep, help monitor CPU and GPU temperature, and more.

Hint: none of these aliases/functions/commands are malicious!
