Multi-line commands in Windows

In *nix, you can make multi-lined commands using the backslash (\), like this:

$ rm -rf \
> file1.txt \
> file2.txt \
> file3.txt

But, that doesn’t work in Windows. Thankfully, someone has already asked the question over at Stack Overflow.

In Windows, the caret (^) is used in the same fashion:

> del ^
More? file1.txt ^
More? file2.txt ^
More? file3.txt

So, there you have it.

Unsupported Browser!

My site is designed for and currently displays best with modern browsers (and it looks like you don't have one!).

Everything should still function properly, but you won't be able to see all the fancy effects, text, or the way I intended my design to look.

Consider trying the latest version of either Firefox or Chrome... I think you'll like it!
