Warning: I'll be posting a bit out of order...
I attended Damian Conway's ~damian/bin tutorial this morning (Monday). It was entertaining (as always). The focus of his talk was convincing us to customize our environments for personal productivity. I felt like much of what he covered was already standard practice for experienced (2+ years) Unix folks, but maybe not.
He covered shell aliases, vi customization, filename completion, small utilities (some in Perl). He demonstrated many of his personal tools and customizations and even makes them available under the Artistic License. Get them here:http://www.yetanother.org/damian/bintools.tar.gz
I didn't really learn much new information, but I did get a new appreciation for how much repetitive work can be streamlined with a bit of effort. It's been a while since I added much to my shell aliases and tools.
