Nagios really wants me to know that the 2nd paper tray on the Xerox in Marcus's office is empty.
So I decided just now to play with zsh, a way featureful shell I've been thinking about trying for about 10 years.
zsh has this one option to do a really simple thing. If you do
setopt autocd in your .zshrc, it will act like so:
brennen@kropotkin 23:57:03 /home/brennen $ l bin/ Downloads/ notes/ tunes/ bones_may2010.pdf Firefox_wallpaper.png p1k3/ xmonad.start canon/ hiring/ photos/ code/ j64-701-user/ s3/ digikam4.db movies/ thumbnails-digikam.db brennen@kropotkin 23:57:04 /home/brennen $ code brennen@kropotkin 23:57:06 /home/brennen/code $
Catch that? Type the name of a directory by itself and it just goes there.
Maybe this will turn out not to be the best idea ever, but on the face of it, well, I have definitely spent enough time in my life typing "cd".
It looks like the night crew shipping guys refilled the paper tray.
