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.

UpGuard checks and validates configurations for every major OS, network device, and cloud provider.

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.

What others think

And while that price increase is for another http://www.repton-pc.gov.uk/log.html discussion, the iconic design of the 70s Rolex Daytonas is something many would like to enjoy, but - tough we need not say this - a lot fewer can afford. Bulgari finally goes a bit more mainstream with their rare blue dial color that we've seen before as part of at least one http://www.can-am.ca/international-process-jul10.asp limited edition model. For 2015, Bulgari will offer two steel watches with http://www.firstreplicarolex.co.uk/ this lovely (and very difficult to photograph) new blue dial color. These two watches exist in the Bulgari Bulgari http://garantplus48.ru/sendform.php collection (the round case), as well as the Bulgari Octo - each model coming on either a bracelet or strap option. So why all the fuss about blue?
