Useful aliases

alias top = htop

Htop is a top replacement, with colors, per-cpu load indicators, scrolling (specially horizontal scrolling so you can see the whole command line for each process), searching, a nicer interface to kill/renice processes, mouse support, and the ability to call strace/ltrace/lsof easily on the process you want.

alias info = pinfo
alias man  = pinfo -m

Pinfo is a lynx-style info and man browser. The main reason to use this, IMHO, is that GNU Info simply sucks as a browser. I’m not so sure about replacing man, as I’m confortable with less-style keybindings, but the ability to follow links to related manpages is a great feature :D

Both are included in all popular distros, so installation is only a matter of looking for the packages in the distro repositories.

    Link exchange is nothing else except it is only placing the other person’s web site link on your page at
    appropriate place and other person will also do
    same in support of you.

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But imagine if you added some
    great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images
    and videos, this site could certainly be one of the very best in its niche.
    Excellent blog!

    Incredible hand control around the graphics of those
    eggs. Move this Pin – It button up in your toolbar so any time you come across a
    graphic online which you love click on it, find the photo you
    would like, and it will show up in your board.
