Ah that sounds radically better than my 'dumb' bog-standard online/corporate
unix training method of cd .. cd cd cd cd ..... ahhhh!!! I'll have to do a
quick read of what ctags is and how to use it as you've specified tomorrow. And
go back and reference your email to me from march that outlined how I could set
up my computer as you have yours set up.

Perfect. Worked.
