I finally got sick of not having proper shell redirection, and set my Mac OS X box to use bash as my shell. Basically, I ran:

fink selfupdate
fink update-all
fink install bash

Then I just needed to set up .bash_profile and .bashrc (using source /sw/bin/ instead of .csh for the fink init file), and set my prefs to use the right shell. For this, I ran:

sudo niutil -createprop / /users/pudge shell /sw/bin/bash

Then in I set it to use the default login for this user.
