Color the shell prompt

34=blue
35=purple
30=black

10 Things I hate about LQ.org

Posted 02-23-2006 at 02:29 PM by simcox1

1. Posts that begin with 'eek'
2. Posts that end with 'plz help'
3. Any reference to Jesus or similar in a signature

9. KDE (not specifically LQ related I know)
10.Podcasts that last an hour or more....
