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.

Stay in the loop…

Follow the Tweets.

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.

Check if a .no domain is available

Mostly for Norwegians, but easily adoptable to others. Very handy if you are brainstorming for a new domainname.

Will only display the available ones..

You can usually do this better with dig, but if you dont have dig, or the TLD only have an online service to check with, this will be usefull..

Alternatives

There is 1 alternative - vote for the best!

Terminal - Alternatives

Know a better way?

If you can do better, submit your command here.

What others think

Why not just use whois, ie:

whois balls.no
