Here are two links that are extremely useful: askubuntu.com/a/24422/334235 and linux.101hacks.com/ps1-examples/prompt-color-using-tput It makes escaping the square brackets much easier.

comment Is it possible to install ctags without root privs?

For me it looks like .bash_profile already gets loaded even with just a terminal login (setup by the admin sometime ago). So adding that line made a circular reference, and locked up bash! Using scp, I got rid of .bash_profile and fixed it. Your post is helpful in general. Just wanted to point out the possible problem with pointing to bashrc from bash_profile.

comment Why isn't a mapped drive available under an elevated cmd prompt but is under a regular cmd prompt?

(Where e: is the drive letter you are mapping, \\computername\folder is the path to be mapped, and password, domain and username are the normal credentials to log-in. Hope that helps someone. I followed on example from here pcsupport.about.com/od/commandlinereference/p/…
