Oh boy! Random misc loose hodge-podge:

---

Linux commands that are really awesome (but that I will probably forget since I rarely use them)

Get lots of awesome hardware info about your box:

lspci -vvv
dmesg | grep -i <something>

Get useful stuff like the kernel version, instruction set architecture, etc.:

uname -a

The flags field in /proc/cpuinfo can tell you a lot... assuming you can figure out how to interpret them.

For example, the lm flag seems to mean 64-bit on both Intel and AMD chips: http://lists.debian.org/debian-amd64/2006/01/msg00217.html

Syntax for checking Dart stuff out of Sourceforge CVS

cvs -d:ext:YOUR_SOURCEFORGE_LOGIN@dart.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/dart co PATH_OF_WHAT_YOU_WANT_TO_CHECK_OUT

where path can be a directory such as dart or dart/perl, or a single file. If it doesn't already exist, the directory tree is created to house the checkout, rooted in the dir where you are running the cvs command.

Ex.: checking out just the file Stockholm.pm:

cvs -d:ext:YOUR_SOURCEFORGE_LOGIN@dart.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/dart co dart/perl/Stockholm.pm

File format specs

Stupid stuff

Hmm... what is this nc command?
