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 equivalent of opening each file in vim and doing
gg=G:wq . Bufdo makes it faster by obviating the need to start vim for each file separately.
OpenDocument documents from OpenOffice.org,LibreOffice
and other applications, are actually ZIP archives.
Useful informations in these archives are in XML format.
Here we like it or do not. Anyway, the XML files have the unfortunate tendency to
not be indented, and for good reason: they consist of only one line!
To solve the problem and to use a proper editor on the content,
I proceed as follows.
You can also use :
zip document.odt content.xml
And it works with vi instead of nano !
Like `tidy`, `xmllint` can be used to prettify XML files.
The --nsclean option is also useful to remove redundant namespaces.
This command takes the content of a Parcellite-managed clipboard manager and add one level of indentation to it. It may be useful to indent a block of code which will enter inside another, already indented one but I use it mostly to indent code I will post in Stack Overflow questions and answers.
xmllint2 comes with GNU libxml2 library.
This version uses the indent C formatting utility. Doesn't appear to be included with ubuntu. But CentOS and MacOS have it.
use -iname \*[.ch] instead of -iname \*.c -o -iname \*.h
Use find's exec and reduce the need for multiple evals with a progn wrapper.
indenting all the files at a time, if the file has local variable for indentation style its even better.
This one liner is not pretty but it does the job.
put "-linux" option into $HOME/.indent.pro to make it default
