Had a problem recently: on a mac,
pbcopy
and
pbpaste
weren't transferring data to/from the GUI Command-C and Command-P (copy and paste).

I often search for something, then want to edit the files where it's found. Here's a nice function I stuck in my bashrc to do just that.

grepvim() {
	if [ -z $1 ]; then echo "Must supply search string."; return 1; fi
	if [ -z $2 ]; then echo "Must supply search file(s)."; return 1; fi
	vim $(grep $1 ${@:2} | sed -e "s/:.*$//" | sort -u)
}
Use:
1
grepvim search file1 [file2, wildcard, etc...]

There are no second chances in hardware."

"This is a remarkable story of focussed technical effort, ingenuity and clever improvisation, and without doubt the shortest development cycle for any production weapon in modern military history."

"I was frustrated by all the wasted effort, so I decided to uncancel my small part of the project. I had been paid to do a job, and I wanted to finish it. My electronic badge still opened Apple's doors, so I just kept showing up."

I got sick of right-clicking on the sound button, selecting preferences, then selecting output device. Annoying!
So I finally got around to automating it, then even added buttons to the menu, and from there to the task bar. I'm on Linux Mint 17 (Mate) at the moment. Here's how it works, after the jump:
