commandlinefu.com is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again.
Delete that bloated snippets file you've been using and share your personal repository with the world. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.
If you have a new feature suggestion or find a bug, please get in touch via http://commandlinefu.uservoice.com/
You can sign-in using OpenID credentials, or register a traditional username and password.
First-time OpenID users will be automatically assigned a username which can be changed after signing in.
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.
Use your favourite RSS aggregator to stay in touch with the latest commands. There are feeds mirroring the 3 Twitter streams as well as for virtually every other subset (users, tags, functions,…):
Subscribe to the feed for:
- tsocks (deb pkg)
- A working SOCKS proxy. It's easy with ssh:
$ ssh -N -D localhost:1080 your.home.pc -p 443
- tsocks configuration in your /etc/tsocks.conf (for the previous):
server = 127.0.0.1
server_port = 1080
Change HH:MM with your target time.
This is for a Debian/Ubuntu GNU system. You need bash (package bash), date (package coreutils) and toilet (package toilet). Install with:

Then, you can assign new accels to GTK menu actions pressing the keys while the option is active.

To connect to the shell run:
nc server.example.org 2000
Redirect the local port 2000 to the remote port 3000. The same but UDP:
nc -u -l -p 2000 -c "nc -u example.org 3000"
It may be used to "convert" TCP client to UDP server (or viceversa):
nc -l -p 2000 -c "nc -u example.org 3000"
