I actually come from the "bang-something" side where it used to be the only way to refer to history back in the tcsh days, and keep surprising my colleagues with my "!:"-fu magic sequences :)

One correction I have is that most (all?) the mentions you made to "!!:x" (e.g. "!!:2") can be actually typed as "!:x" (i.e. one "!" is enough). Only "!!" by itself to repeat the last line and execute it immediately requires two "!".

Type the word "0day_42": (just to make sure you're a human)
