I love the MySQL command line client.
`$ mysql -u wikiDB1user -p wikiDB1`
This reads as
* start the MySQL command line client
* my username is wikiDB1user
* prompt me for my password
* select wikiDB1
The -p switch confuses a lot of people. To specify the password on the
command line, you do something like `-ppassword`, i.e. no space. If
the switch is specified as-is, without anything immediately following
it, then it causes the client to prompt for the password.
