Mastering the command line can really boost your productivity and make your daily computing more efficient. But once you've managed the basics, you might want to learn a few advanced and nifty command-line tricks. Enter Command-line Fu, a veritable treasure trove for command-line users. Command-line Fu is not your plain listing of useful commands: similar to Digg, users can submit their own commands and vote for the commands submitted by others. It a dead-simple idea, but it works very well indeed. Clicking on the command you like automatically selects it, so you can quickly copy and paste it into the terminal. Commands listed on the Web site are not limited to any specific topic. Here you can find anything from starting a simple Python-based Web-server to updating your Twitter status. Speaking of Twitter, all new commands submitted on the Web site are posted on the Command-line Fu's Twitter account, so you can track the latest submission via Twitter.
