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,…):

You can add or remove `-@` to print extended attributes for files that have them.
I find it useful, when cleaning up deleting unwanted files to make more space, to list in size order so I can delete the largest first.
Note that using "q" shows files with non-printing characters in name.
In this sample output (above), I found two copies of the same iso file both of which are immediate "delete candidates" for me.
I know this sucks in some way but if someone can improve it please be my guest
Found this one little more for me. This one removes the perl dependency (from command 2535).
