if you'd like some more to add to your collection, try asking a
question to the smoothwall people. instead of probing questions
or helpful nudges, all i ever got was abuse.
avoid smoothwall. they're awful people.

How do you keep text from SCROLLING BY TOO DAMN FAST? :)
Before pressing the ENTER key of a command that you know will
generate a lot of output, "pipe" it through your pager:
ls -lR | pager
locate tgz | pager
grep -r pattern /home | pager
You can also try <SHIFT>-<PAGE-UP> to scroll back. This works
both at the console and in rxvt/xterm windows.
