~/bin is surprisingly useful

    Well, duh!😁
    Even though I prefer ~/BIN, since I always name my important directories in all-casps.

    I use ~/Apps as configure prefix or as target directory for unpacking software

    It's the most common way to add custom binaries to your own path on non-root shells provided with services such as seedboxes :)

    No shit 😁

    although I do have:
    vim ~/scripts/aaa.sh
    cp -rp ~/scripts/aaa.sh ~/bin/
    chmod u+x ~/scripts/aaa.sh

    this way you can build scripts w/o accidentaly calling them from your PATH. And have scripts' plugins you don't want to trash PATH with.
