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:
Mac install ssh-copy-id
From there on out, you would upload keys to a server like this:
(make sure to double quote the full path to your key)
ssh-copy-id -i "/PATH/TO/YOUR/PRIVATE/KEY" [email protected]
or, if your SSH server uses a different port (often, they will require that the port be '2222' or some other nonsense:
(note the double quotes on *both* the "/path/to/key" and "[email protected] -pXXXX"):
ssh-copy-id -i "/PATH/TO/YOUR/PRIVATE/KEY" "[email protected] -pXXXX"
...where XXXX is the ssh port on that server
Run program as root by SSH key forwarding instead of sudoers.
Put this alias line in .bashrc or wherever you like. Alias arguments might need extra escaping.
You might wonder about security. But you'd block out root login as much as possible of course. In sshd_config you put this:
Match Address 127.0.0.1
When you start screen as `ssh-agent screen`, agent will die after detatch.
If you don't want to take care about files when stored agent's pid/socket/etc, you have to use this command.
