393 2009-10-22 16:55:58 @sonic What would ye all think about making up some cheatsheets or perhaps getting people such as johan/atlas/lil_cain/andrew/haus/myself to make one up or suggest entries
394 2009-10-22 16:56:20 andrew sounds like a wiki project
395 2009-10-22 16:56:38 andrew start something with each talk
396 2009-10-22 16:56:44 andrew then let people contribute etc.
397 2009-10-22 16:56:49 lil_cain Define cheatsheet?
398 2009-10-22 16:59:06 haus old topic is old

mutt -y Opens mutt, with folders

mutt -s pipe/redirect stuff to this to send email

Useful Bash Stuff

mesg n sets your tty permissions to -w All. Useful to stop people dumping stuff on your terminal

vim The coolest text editor ever

type This is a bash builtin (I think) that tells you what you're running (where it is, whether it's a builtin, or whatever). I prefer it to which, since its A: always there, and B:knows more about your aliases and stuff

write like hey, but nor formatting

who gives you a list of logged in users. Useful for playing with when your scripting

last gives you a list of the users who *have* logged in. On RB, its in the last month

wget downloads websites

man -k is a synonym for apropos, but easier to spell. Searches for manpages, based on some kind of meta data
