  • Commonly used UNIX commands - UNIX (commands, general info)
  • vi Editor Commands - Yes, Emacs users, I'm a Vi person
  • Emacs Command Summary - but in case you prefer Emacs...
  • Country Calling Codes - page for getting calling codes for any country you may need to call.
  • Currency Conversion - fairly self-explanitory. Allows for currency conversions on a given day (great for those foreign trips you need to do reimbursements for).
  • LaTeX - A nice page at Brown Univ. for those of use who don't use this frequently.
  • TechFileFormat - File Extension listing, great for when you need to do something cross platform or need to append an extension to an older file to read in newer software.
