    Hello all,

    Can anyone tell me how to set my primary workspace or whatever it's called in Terminal to my local drive?

    To be more specific: I'm at work, and need to install and download RVM (https://rvm.beginrescueend.com/). To install, you need to use a simple one line command: ' bash < <(curl -s https://rvm.beginrescueend.com/install/rvm) '. However, when I do this, the installer automatically installs to the company's mail server. (For security purposes, I cannot post the full message, but I'll post most of it at the end of my message). Is there any way to get it to stop doing this and just install to my local machine?

    Code:
    cd /
    Should change the current directory to the root of your local drive.

    It would seem like your home directory ~ is on the server.

    Note: you should not need the bash. Only the bit starting with curl.
