Hi all,

I'm the proud owner of a 15" PowerBook and I'm wondering what sort of hacks people have done to the software, since I'm a software geek.

Personally I've only just started and I've done a couple of neat shell hacks :-

If you find it annoying that man pages disappear when you return to the shell, or that the file you are paging thorugh with less also goes try this in '.profile' in your home directory

LESS="-X" ; export LESS

Or if you'd like ls to display different file types in different colours

CLICOLOR="yes" ; export CLICOLOR
