what model of computer I'm using?

check the status of 'dd' in progress (OS X)
"killall -USR1 dd" does not work in OS X for me. However, sending INFO instead of USR1 works.

Kill all processes that listen to ports begin with 50 (50, 50x, 50xxx,...)
Run netstat as root (via sudo) to get the ID of the process listening on the desired socket. Use awk to 1) match the entry that is the listening socket, 2) matching the exact port (bounded by leading colon and end of column), 3) remove the trailing slash and process name from the last column, and finally 4) use the system(…) command to call kill to terminate the process. Two direct commands, netstat & awk, and one forked call to kill. This does kill the specific port instead of any port that starts with 50. I consider this to be safer.

follow the content of all files in a directory
The `-q' arg forces tail to not output the name of the current file

Write comments to your history.
A null operation with the name 'comment', allowing comments to be written to HISTFILE. Prepending '#' to a command will *not* write the command to the history file, although it will be available for the current session, thus '#' is not useful for keeping track of comments past the current session.

Mac OS X - List all of my machine's IP addresses
On the Mac, the format ifconfig puts out is little different from Linux: the IP address is space separated, instead of colon. That makes parsing the IP address easier. See releated command for Linux/Unix: http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/view/651/getting-the-ip-address-of-eth0
