Stay in the loop…

Follow the Tweets.

Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.

Look for an rpm that supplies a specific file that you don't yet have installed.

extremely useful when you need something and don't know where it is.. or what its called.

note: uses grep like syntax.

iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -d ! 10.0.0.0/8 -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to-destination 10.1.1.123:3128

Replace 10.0.0.0/8 with your largest local subnet. replace 10.1.1.123:3128 with your proxy information.. Note this only works with a proxy server configured for passive setup..

Now your firefox transparently proxy's stuff destined outside your network.. and Doesn't proxy stuff inside your network. as well as all your other favorite web applications. curl, wget, aria2 ect.
