Clear your cache often, but never your shell history.

@SciencePhysicist @oedmarap I see your point(s).
I don't administer servers anymore, but when I did, I felt better not leaving history in the machine.
And I'm just happier the less info' is left on a computer generally.

@greenpete Oh definitely, shell command history beyond Bash's default of 2000 lines is only applicable for desktop usage where Zsh is usually installed.
