Simple note taking from the command line

This is a simple function that can be called from the command line, just like if it was a regular command. It is a quick way of taking notes and storing them in a text file.

Just add the following lines to your ~/.bashrc:

# My function to take quick notes on useful commands
notes() {
echo $1 >> $HOME/

It can be used like this:

$ notes "my_command -which -I -want -to remember"

You can read your notes like this:

$ more ~/
