Setting Terminal Colors

Just a forewarning, this has been sitting in my drafts folder for a very long time, and I'm not sure if it is complete but figured I'd publish it now otherwise delete it.
  • On FreeBSD and Mac OS Xls shows colors if the CLICOLOR environment variable is set or if-G is passed on the command line. The actual colors are configured through the LSCOLORSenvironment variable (built-in defaults are used if this variable is not set). To show directories in light blue, use
    export LSCOLORS=Exfxcxdxbxegedabagacad


export CLICOLOR=1
export LSCOLORS=gxbxhxdxcxhxhxhxhxcxcx

. ~/.bash_profile

Colors for Dark Terminal Themes:
export CLICOLOR=1
export LSCOLORS=GxFxCxDxBxegedabagaced

Colors for Light Terminal Themes:

Complete Online Defensive Driving In Minutes Not Hours - 4k Video

Ever have to take online driving class? If so, this video will show you how to breeze through it in a matter of minutes instead of hours. Just a simple JavaScript command allows you to bypass the timer that forces you to wait 7-12 minutes per page. You don't need to know anything about JavaScript to use this cheat, and you can do it in most any modern browser. I used Google Chrome for this video, but it is a similar process in Firefox and Internet Explorer; all you have to do is get to the console (press F12 in Internet Explorer and Firefox is pretty much the same as Chrome.)

Here is an image of the script that got me started. After looking at this I thought I could just set minute to 0 and that would be it, but it turned out that this is not being used, still interesting to look at:
