Stupid Meme Time (again)

 slim:~ st$ history|awk '{a[$2]++} END{for(i in a){printf "%5d\t%s\n ",a[i],i}}'|sort -rn|head
    132  cd
    116  ls
    18  ssh
    17  vi
    15  svn
    15  rake
    15  find
    14  hg
    13   script/server
    11  killall

Major lesson learned: I should really do something about these hanging ssh connections.

If your ssh connection hangs, most of the time you wont need killall, you can terminate a connection by typing ~ . (tilde followed by dot). This only works if your terminal knows that you’re at the start of a line, so maybe you have to type Enter ~ .

Works like a charm, and is tremendously useful, especially if you change networks a lot and end up with three terminals that have a hanging ssh session all the time …
