Default Your OpenBSD shell setup

How about a thread where we show off our shell configuration dot files? It might be a nice resource; I certainly find myself reinventing the wheel each time I come back to a shell (or an OS) that I haven't used in a while.

So how do you folks have your shells and terminals set up? Strut your stuff.

I'm simple:
xterm -bg black fg white -fa Inconsolata-10 +sb
I keep an extremely simple ksh .profile. So simple, I have no qualms including it in my portable version of OpenBSD ksh:

With the PS1 line uncommented and the bind -m line removed.

And tmux(1) always running. Literally with the defaults. Like I said, I'm simple.

I've also added these lines to ~/.profile:
case "$KSH_VERSION" in
        *MIRBSD*) ;;
        *) export ENV="$HOME/.kshrc" ;;

export PAGER=most
export EDITOR='9 ed'
export VISUAL=vim
export BROWSER=chrome

[ "$(tty)" = "/dev/ttyC0" ] && exec xinit -- -nolisten tcp -tst

9 fortune
I use the supplied mkshrc example when using that shell, along with my trivial aliases.
Linux is for people who hate Windows. BSD is for people who love UNIX.
