        More lovely alias commands... this time to kill/restart Rail's script/server from any Terminal session or login on your box... (as long as your the same user).

alias dierails='ps -a|grep "/usr/local/bin/ruby script/server"|grep -v "grep /usr"|cut -d " " -f1|xargs -n 1 kill -KILL $1'
alias resetrails='ps -a|grep "/usr/local/bin/ruby script/server"|grep -v "grep /usr"|cut -d " " -f1|xargs -n 1 kill -HUP $1'
