Monitor logs in Linux using Tail
Works in Ubuntu, I hope it will work on all Linux machines. For Unixes, tail should be capable of handling more than one file with '-f' option. This command line simply take log files which are text files, and not ending with a number, and it will continuously monitor those files. Putting one alias in .profile will be more useful.

Exclude inserting a table from a sql import
Starting with a large MySQL dump file (*.sql) remove any lines that have inserts for the specified table. Sometimes one or two tables are very large and uneeded, eg. log tables. To exclude multiple tables you can get fancy with sed, or just run the command again on subsequently generated files.

If you are behind a proxy server and have to authenticate with proxy server to browser web pages then you have to pass proxy server address and its port number along with user credentials to curl to got GET the page using curl. Example : "curl -U srikanth -x 167.85.103.70:8080 http://www.yahoo.com". In case you don't specify the password (as in the above example), curl will prompt to enter the password at the command line.
