autojump: Linux cd command on steroids

autojump is “a cd command that learns,” one that programatically learns your favorite directories and allows you to minimize keyboard input to get you where you want.

autojump is a faster way to navigate your filesystem. It works by maintaining a database of the directories you use the most from the command line. The jumpstat command shows you the current contents of the database. You need to work a little bit before the database becomes usable. Autojump will listen and rank your ‘cd’ commands by frequency.

This seems like a good utility for commandline purists!

sudo mkdir /media/external
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/external

Or something close to that.
