Saw that one in Smith’s. Couldn’t resist. I now call my new 8 week old son, “Little Buckwheat.”

I really like that one. Perfect.

Everyone enjoy.

change… and back again

One command that I use often is “cd.” That’s great for getting to specific directories. A couple of quick tips:

First, you can use it by itself to return to your home directory. If you username is “joe”, and at a command prompt you run “cd” by itself, you are taken to “/home/joe/”. That’s pretty cool.

Second, if you run it with a “-” (dash), it takes you back one in your “present working directory” history. So if I am at “/home/scott” and then I type “cd ..” and hit ENTER, I will be at “/home/”. If I type “cd -” and hit ENTER, I am taken back to where I just was, which is “/home/scott”. Run it again, and I am taken back to where I just was, which is “/home/”.

This is really great if you have to keep switching back and forth between the same two directories in the project you’re working on.
