take one line notes easily in linux with touch (of evil)

You're reading some comics or watching some serie and you want to take note of the last book/episode you read/watched so, few days later, you can continue from where you have left. One of the most practical ways of doing that is to put a reminder in the comic/serie directory. No need to create a text file named "tome-11" or "scrubs-s05-e11", you can create an empty file with the desired name in a single second. We can do it by using touch (of evil) command. Usually, touch command is used for changing access and modification time of files but also it is an easy way to create an empty file. Just open the terminal and write
 touch yourNote
in the comic/serie directory.
