Top Ten Most Ran Programs

A meme doing the rounds, here is the list of ten applications I’ve used the most. I appear to have a much smaller HISTSIZE than some.

dean@tir:~$ history|awk '{print $2}'|awk 'BEGIN {FS="|"} {print $1}'|sort|uniq -c|sort -rn | head
    119 sudo
     77 ls
     34 apt-cache
     25 ping
     23 vi
     20 man
     20 cd
     18 cat
     17 ssh
     14 iwlist

Guess who’s been having internet problems and is struggling with patchy access to a neighbours wireless. A lot of the sudo commands are me bouncing the network connection.

Like Wouter I have a habit of using “ls” when I’ve forgotten what I was going to do. I’ve also been using bash completion so I haven’t been “cd”ing as often as I used.
