  • This command attempts to attach to existing irssi session, if one exists, otherwise creates one. I use "irc" because I use different irc clients depending on what system I am working on. Consistency is queen.

  • Tries to reattach to screen, if it's not available, creates one. created an alias "irc" for it, since sometimes i forget if there already is a screen session running with irssi, this way I avoid creating a new one by mistake.

    screen -r irc || screen -S irc irssi

Use vi commands to edit your command lines
If you spend all day editing in vi then switching your fingers to Emacs mode just for the command line can be difficult. Use set -o vi in your bash shell and enjoy the power of a real editor.

Copy file to a Windows/Samba share without mounting it
This commando copies the file (which must reside in the current directory) to //<server>/<share-name>/<subdirectory>/<file> through the CIFS protocol (Samba share or Windows Share). It doesn't require you to mount the filesystem first. --directory "<subdirectory>" may be omitted in order to copy the file the the root of the share. The "%password" part may also be omitted. If doing so, smbclient will ask for the password interactively. To copy a file from a Windows/Samba share, change "put" for "get". $ smbclient --user=user%password --directory "<subdirectory>" --command "get <file>" //<server>/<share-name>
