I think we should be able to silence noisy cat(1)s by "|"-ing them more(1)
or less(1) with any /dev we wish(1). Perhaps, seperate cat(1) from(1)
tail(1), as *this may make(1) us up to date(1) and allow us to
get(LWPP::Simple(3)) the most(1) of our utime(2) with our feline inode.

Does the over- head(1) make(1) you feel awk(1)ward or raise alarm(1)? Dont
bash(1) *this; if(shell-built-in) you are in a bind(2) and must decide
between kill(1)ing sleep(1)ing cat(1) or exec(3)uting a new one, perhaps
you will be nice(1)er than me and choose diff(1)erent.

Personally, I expect(1) to always have a cat(1) in my PATH. It can make it
easier to exec(3)ute it since it is much easier to find(1).

So the gist(1) of this is: it is good to have a cat(1) in your PATH, but
even better to be able to quiet a noisy cat(1) by "|"-ing it more(1).

Ok, time(1) for me to remind(1) myself where I am, halt(8) or exit(3) and
lilo(8) for a while.

$ kill -9 -1
