    Clear ALL console history

    I want to clear the thing where you press up and it gives you the previous command you did, because it gets annoying sometimes, how do I do that? Typing 'clear' (without quotes) in the console only clears the text but it does not clear what I am talking about (the up thing).

    It's stored in this file
    /home/username/.bash_history

    I find it very useful since in gedit you can search the file.

    WOOT!
    Will it also delete the history auto of the CTRL+ALT+F* thing too? I would think so...
