Recently I read about this amazing technique in an Hacker News thread on people's solutions to store their dotfiles. User StreakyCobra showed his elegant setup and ... It made so much sense! I am in the process of switching my own system to the same technique. The only pre-requisite is to install Git.

I am always tweaking and tricking my bash environment. I hit the same issues again and again and I always have to look up the solution, time after time. This happens until I get annoyed enough to sit down - okay, generally I am already sitting down but you get the point - and create a custom function, put it in my .bashrc and deploy it to any machine I log on to.
