why isn't this on the nyt's front page?

fuck, did you know that grep has a --color option? don't lie, none of your asses did either.

this is probably the biggest news that i've heard in the past decade. i'm on the verge of adding "alias grep='grep --color'" to my .bashrc, which, to a nerd, is basically on the same level as getting hitched.

there are some other good unix-y tips in the post, but i doubt i will ever be able to break the "pipe grep to wc" habit.
