Java personalizing my unix environment

I share a login id/password with several folks so I don't like to change the .profile or other environment variables (e. g., set ignorecase in vi) that other users may expect to be set. Any suggestions to tailor my environment that will not affect other users

You can make your own .profile and put it in a different directory.
When you logon you should go to this directory and give the following command

. ./.profile

By doing this you load your own .profile only in a different directory.
