Q) When I run "sudo -i shell_alias" I get "command not found" even
   though the alias is defined in my shell startup files.

A) Commands run via "sudo -i" are executed by the shell in
   non-interactive mode.  The bash shell will only parse aliases in
   interactive mode unless the "expand_aliases" shell option is
   set.  If you add "shopt -s expand_aliases" to your .bash_profile
   (or .profile if using that instead) the aliases should now be
   available to "sudo -i".
