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,…):

commandline for mac os x
analyze traffic remotely over ssh w/ wireshark
When using tcpdump, specify -U option to prevent buffering and -iany to see all interfaces.
dsniff is general purpose password sniffer, it handles *lots* of different protocols, but it also handles tcp-style expressions for limiting analyzed traffic - so I can limit it to work on pop3 only.
The command is useful for monitoring the use of the boxes and their connection IP.
Result file "sniff" is readable with GUI program "wireshark" or through CLI with the command:
tcpdump -f "sniff" -XX
When using tcpdump, specify -U option to prevent buffering.

This allows you to display the wireshark program running on remote pc to your local pc.
This captures traffic on a remote machine with tshark, sends the raw pcap data over the ssh link, and displays it in wireshark. Hitting ctrl+C will stop the capture and unfortunately close your wireshark window. This can be worked-around by passing -c # to tshark to only capture a certain # of packets, or redirecting the data through a named pipe rather than piping directly from ssh to wireshark. I recommend filtering as much as you can in the tshark command to conserve bandwidth. tshark can be replaced with tcpdump thusly:
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org tcpdump -w - 'port !22' | wireshark -k -i -
