Am I the only person who gets ln -s the wrong way round every time?

ln -s d1 d2 # Am I the only person who gets this the wrong way round every fucking time?

Similar to most people who have posted there – I used to still get it wrong every time. It’s become a habit for me to do a man ln or ln –help before I execute this command :\

Great tip here though:

but then I finally found out about the relationship between ln and cp
cp existing new
ln -s existing new

via ln -s d1 d2 # Am I the only person who gets this the wrong way round every fucking time? : programming.
