The "Lost" prompt

Blogger David Winter has a posted a cute how-to showing you how to change the prompt in your terminal to the ">:" used in Lost.

Basically, you update your .zprofile or .bashrc or .kshrc to include the line export PS1=">: ". Me? I'm a csh weenie. I'd have to use set prompt=">: " to get the same effect. (The same thing applies for tcsh users.)

Winter also includes instructions on how to get the green-on-black color settings used in the program.

4 8 15 16 23 42 and all that.
