    I'm doing a lot of housekeeping at the moment and clearing out old data. I have discovered that when using Thunar to delete things, after a while tumblerd goes wild and needs to reigned in with a quick killall tumblerd

    I was tracking down what happened after the update. Nvidia issues

    What has occurred to me during this thread is how little I use the terminal compared to a couple of years ago. The question is have I got lazy or do I just not need to?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Sometime even I used to think to I'm using too much GUI - using gedit instead vim etc. Then started to force myself to invoke gui via startx,every time i login. Learned few new tricks with vim now its fun again.

    I agree. That is a great command line.

    Here's mine:
    Code:
         1  135  13.5%  make
         2  46   4.6%   ed
         3  40   4%     df
         4  39   3.9%   cd
         5  38   3.8%   dx
         6  32   3.2%   tar
         7  30   3%     as
         8  28   2.8%   man
         9  25   2.5%   cdt
        10  20   2%     gcc
    dx is like ls -l | more and cdt is cd $HOME/tmp. ed is vim.

    Glad you're finding it useful Jack but I didn't come up with it. I remembered there was a command out there that would do what we're doing here so Googled it.

    I think these days I'd go for an Ati or AMD as they are now.

    Dapper Dan, at least you were aware of the storage and a command to retrieve it and display it elegantly. Remembering is probably the most important. We can't remember it all, just where to find it...

    The output of that script is quite surprising - I don't use the command line much other than to update the system or dick about with things as the root user. With that in mind, here's my two lists.

    First for me:

    Code:
         1	267  26.7535%   ls
         2	214  21.4429%   cd
         3	92   9.21844%   su
         4	63   6.31263%   cvs
         5	47   4.70942%   ssh
         6	24   2.40481%   rm
         7	17   1.70341%   gedit
         8	16   1.60321%   cat
         9	16   1.60321%   calibre
        10	12   1.2024%    cp
    and for me as root:
    Code:
         1	93  21.9858%   ls
         2	73  17.2577%   cd
         3	64  15.13%     systemctl
         4	28  6.61939%   yum
         5	19  4.49173%   less
         6	17  4.01891%   vim
         7	16  3.78251%   service
         8	10  2.36407%   cat
         9	9   2.12766%   tail
        10	8   1.89125%   mount
