Nice try

Tired of looking this up... so I'm posting it. I don't use the unix nice command very often, but when I do, the man page seems a little confusing. Here's the format I typically use the command:
nice -n +19
That runs the command at the lowest possible priority, helpful if you're going to do some big file op and don't want to cause anyone else any grief.
