Just a quick command to double the size of the /tmp filesystem that uses tmpfs. This is  for those situations when you can’t be bothered to think.

One thing to keep in mind, however, is that tmpfs is stored in volatile memory – sort of like a RAM disk – so it can pretend to be as big as you want it, but it can’t really hold more data than the available RAM.
