little known factoid. on most modern versions of tar you can simply

tar xvf blah-blah.tar.bz2

and it will automatically detect the major compression methods - be it
.Z, .gz or .bz2.   note, no '-' and no 'j'/'z' - thats 2 less characters
to type each time you do a tar operation...think of the savings on your
keyboard and the resulting productivity gain!  ;-)
