Command-line-fu "is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again. Delete that bloated snippets file you’ve been using and share your personal repository with the world. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on and discussed - digg-esque voting is also encouraged so the best float to the top." The site is still in alpha, but it’s quite exciting.



And if you like that site, you may also enjoy Snipt.

just in case anyone didn't get that bad joke, what f0dder posted above will erase all files from your hard disk -- do not type it.

Yes, people have been getting permabanned from Ubuntuforums for posting this and similar directives as "solutions".

And as punishment for this heinous crime, they should have their entire drive erased, of course.

f0dder knows the bomb key code! A good thing is, that's usually in Ch.1 of all shell books. Also, thanks for the Shell-fu link, Edvard!

Obviously I wouldn't have given that command to anybody asking for *u*x help. Might've been a bit thoughtless to post it here without a warning. But then again, some people only learn the hard way tongue
