Install an mpkg from the command line on OSX
Installing most OSX apps is just a matter of dropping it in /Applications, either GUI-wise or with cp -r. However, many packages are distributed in "mpkg" format, and those have to be installed with an installer. If you don't want to go to the trouble of firing up VNC to install an mpkg, you can use the "installer" command. This will install an application from a .mpkg it to /Applications system-wide. To install a program for just one user, replace "-target /" with "-target username".

Losslessly rotate videos from your phone by 90 degrees.
Takes all the .3gp files in the directory, rotates them by 90 degrees, and saves them in the lossless ffv1 encoding. If this rotates in the wrong direction, you may want transponse=1 Re-encoding to ffv1 may result in a significant increase in file size, as it is a lossless format. Other applications may not recognize ffv1 if they don't use ffmpeg code. "huffyuv" might be another option for lossless saving of your transformations. The audio may be re-encoded as well, if the encoding used by your 3gp file doesn't work in a avi container.

Copy specific files to another machine, keeping the file hierarchy
Notes: * Adjust the find command to your own filters. * The -P flag forces to keep absolute paths in the tarball, so that you can be sure that the exact same file hierarchy will be created on the second machine.
