I had never tracked down what "ps" is. It's a snapshot of running
processes. Process snapshot. ps.

Found this in "man ps"

$ ps -q 1136 -o comm=

MUCH NICER. It presents this instead of all that excess feedback from "ps aux":

$ ps -q 1136 -o comm=
wicd-client

MUCH NICER. Much cleaner, much easier to grasp that particular
information when needed.
