Which reminds me that I have been meaning to cover my tail with a few aliases
alias cp='cp -i '
alias mv='mv -i '
alias rm='rm -i '
Which allows these programs to run with an "are you sure query" that you need
to answer. In my humble opinion, rm -rf is a very scary, but necessary
command, which needs to be on a leash.
