Stop all that bash beeping

You have to use the bash shell, since it's available everywhere.

Unfortunately the constant beeping when you hit tab to complete a filename on the command line is tedious.

To turn that off, add the following to /etc/inputrc or /.inputrc:

 set show-all-if-ambiguous on

and bash will just display the possible completions instead of beeping at you.

Your office companions will probably like this.
