    Fantastic tricks. Efficiency of command line console and ssh made my work much much more productive and very well justifies my switch from Windows to Linux about a year ago. Age of this article does not harm it's validity, in fact, it shows, that some great stuff was burned into Linux DNA already some time ago. Thanks a lot for this article it.

    Great article, so many useful tips for.

    One small suggestion. I wouldn't recommend enabling ForwardAgent in your .ssh/config, since that could be a security risk if you connect to a malicious host. I would suggest that you use ssh -A when you need it, or enable ForwardAgent just for specific hosts.

    Keeping the community visible is a great idea! I'm glad to see the 270-people rise since the last time I visited gittip a few weeks ago :)

    The only thing... I'm not seeing myself neither in the members list nor in the givers list (yeah, I've used the ?filter=400 thing to see all users)... Weird.

    I actually use WebDrive to do this, if anyone still happens to be looking for a reasonably-priced option. It is a bit less expensive than Expandrive (which I will admit I have never tried). But I've always had success with Webdrive and have been using it for years. www.webdrive.com
