History Meme

  2008-04-11


For some reason I find this meme interesting… I don’t know why I find it interesting, but at least its brief.

Home Office Computer (Debian Unstable)

$ history|awk '{a[$2]++} END{for(i in a){printf "%5d\t%s\n",a[i],i}}'|sort -rn|head
   99   sudo
   80   cd
   59   ssh
   52   vi
   47   ls
   19   cat
   17   ipython2.5
   12   svn
   12   man
    8   host

Server I do most of my work on these days… (Ubuntu 6.10)

$ history|awk '{a[$2]++} END{for(i in a){printf "%5d\t%s\n",a[i],i}}'|sort -rn|head
  288   vi
  108   svn
   59   cd
   15   ls
    8   screen
    4   grep
    2   sudo
    2   mv
    2   make
    2   cat

I haven’t seen ipython on anyone else’s yet. I’m constantly hopping in & out of ipython to test things.

On the GUI side of things I use Gnome, Firefox, Epiphany, Gnome-Terminal, Banshee, Pidgin, and NetworkManager every day.
