  • On a tmux session, open multiple panes, then do this:

    Ctrl+B, Shift+;

    Then type:

    setw sync on
    

    All panes will now type the same thing - Makes it easy to set up many systems at once in a ad-hoc fashion. Press the command sequence again and type setw sync off to turn it off again.

    Cheap dedis are my drug, and I'm too far gone to turn back.

  • Whether or not you watch anime, paste this command in your terminal window.

    telnet 2001:7b8:666:ffff::1:42

    This command is fun and safe. Nothing offensive or harmful. No special account privileges needed. Trust me and try it.

    Note:
    It works with IPv6. The original IPv4 version still works but blocks many (most?) locations. It started years ago without explanation.

    I'm surprised how no one has mentioned nload yet.

    nload - shows per interface network usage live on a graph on your terminal. very handy at times. (eg. uploading something via curl)

    apt install nload

    nload
