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.

If you can do better, submit your command here.

What others think

If you want to grab only a subset of your screen (i.e. one window) you'll want to make sure the -s is set to the window size and add the starting position to -i, e.g. -i :0.0+160,200

You can get window size and position from the xwininfo command.
