By default when connecting over ssh to my Mac OS X 10.4 box (using bash shell), there’s no ANSI color. Sometimes it’s pretty handy to have. I keep forgetting how to turn it on.
To add, put the following in the
.profile file in your home directory:
TERM=xterm-color; export TERM
Now when I ssh in, I get ANSI color goodness.
Hopefully next time I’ll just look for this post.

You can also set this in your Terminal.app settings. On 10.4 it’s Terminal -> window preferences if I remember corectly.
Link those config files to a directory in your public_html space (and leave that dir browsable), then they’re easier to find than digging through blog archives … would like to find programs that start loading my preferences (and saving them) up like this over the wire.
Cool new blog layout.
@Scott Fitchet: The nice thing about using a blog entry is that it’s indexed by search engines, and worded in my own words. So next time I wonder how to do this… it will likely be in the first 5 results of my search.
