Taming the terminal

One day I decided that the terminal of Mac OS X was too dull without colors. Intially, I updated my .bash_profile. It looks something like:

alias ls='ls -G'
alias ll='ls -l'
PS1="\[33[1;34m\]\h\[33[0m\]:\W \$ "

Well, pretty good start I guess. But the default colors were an eyesoar, so an alternative would be to turn off colors again and move back to were I started. I did not want to do that. So I found a litte program called TerminalColours, which allows one to replace the colors.

This is what it looks like!
