Alias To A Nice Default Gitk

Free Resource
Just a really quick and easy shell alias for my preferred defaults for Git's repository and branch viewer, Gitk.

This runs "gitk"...
...including all branches,
...outputting errors to the black hole,
...and any extra command-line arguments.

# Run like this
# gitk --since="2 days ago" &

alias gitk="gitk --all $1 2>/dev/null"
