"~" refers to the home directory. So, say you've got a console
up. Type, for example, if you like gedit, `gedit ~/.bashrc` (without
the quotes, of course). That should do it. I have no idea what
"dot.bashrc" is.

One other thing I neglected to mention before... This will only work
if you are starting BOINC from the command line, and only then AFTER
you have restarted bash. This means you have to open up a new console,
or, alternatively, type `bash` to start a new bash process (there's
probably also another way to get the current bash process to reread
the .bashrc file, though I'm not aware of how to do this offhand).
