Oh how I love the command-line. I spend most of my work time either hacking away at stuff in a text editor or slapping together cryptic commands at my shell prompt.

So I just imported a database onto a staging server:

[fixed:zing@stage01:~ > dbl mocapay dump-mocapay.sql.gz]

As if that’s not cryptic enough, I needed to import a second database as well. Let’s be honest: that command above is a lot to type. It’s so much easier to do this:

[fixed:zing@stage01:~ > !!:gs/y/y_ext]

And voila!

I just don’t understand those people who think the command line is complicated… heh heh.
