I've been typing 'ps ax' for so long I can't remember now why, or when,
I started doing it - it's become my standard way of finding out what's
going on.  I think I may have started using it on UNIX SVR4 in the '80's
but it might even be earlier than that.

What do you use?  And why?  Am I alone in having this perverted view of
our favorite process status lister?
