Why don't you back off!! These are commands that I use and maybe others will find useful too. If you don't like it then down vote and be gone!

Um, I'm gonna go with malathion. The search bar is right there at the top. Those are great commands, it's just that they're already in the "All-time greats."

Even if they are they are not in the recent which is the ones I look at. I guess I am not the only one that does that.
techie · 270 weeks and 3 days ago
No you pretty much are the only person. That's why this stupid and pointless post got -8 votes.
malathion · 270 weeks and 1 day ago
how many of yours isn't in the minus??? Lets see.. Idiot!!
techie · 268 weeks and 4 days ago
All of them.. HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!! Who is stupid now?
techie · 268 weeks and 4 days ago
Please refrain from posting duplicate commands. Also sorry that the separation of the internet makes people feel that they can speak that loudly. Also learn that there is almost always a method to other sites madness.

Any thoughts on this command? Does it work on your machine? Can you do the same thing with only 14 characters?
