Loading PostGIS with ESRI Shapefiles

Note to self:
Use shp2pgsql to create CREATE/INSERT sql;
shp2pgsql -c -D -s 4326 -I <shp file> <table name> > <file output name>.sql
and then follow it up with the lovely;
psql -d <database name> -U <user name> -f <file output name>.sql
This way I've got all that lovely SQL to store somewhere if I need it.
