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.
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,…):

Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:

The options say: base filename on title, ignores errors and continue partial downloads. Also, stores some metadata into a .json file plz.
Paste youtube users and playlists for extra fun.
Protip: git-annex loves these files
Google Cloud SDK comes with a package manager `gcloud components` but it needs a bit of `sed` to work. Modify the "^| Not" bit to change the package selection. (The gcloud --format option is currently broken)
Leave out pygmentize or `pip install pygments` first.
Uses pygmentize and python to create indented and colorized JSON output
order the files by modification (thanks stanishjohnd) time, one file per output line and filter first 10
imports a public key from the web. I know this by head.. but useful nevertheless
Starts midnightcommander and allows you to detach the console; use ctrl-\ to detach
Then at a later time you can reconnect using

find all email addresses in a file, printing each match. Addresses do not have to be alone on a line etc. For example you can grab them from HTML-formatted emails or CSV files, etc. Use a combination of

Another, maybe nicer way to do this is
You could replace sed with tr
