comment extract a few members from tar archive and pipe through network
Alternatively, if "one-liner" is more important than "how long it takes", you can pipe the whole archive through ssh and extract the members you want on the other side "cat file.tar.gz | ssh user@host 'tar zxvf file1 file2 dir1'

comment Can I customize the format of Emacs' buffers-menu?
Thanks for steering me in the right direction. Incidentally, if you don't like having subgroups in the menu (this was my case, because I don't like selecting a buffer to be a two-step process), you can set the mouse-buffer-menu-mode-mult variable to a large number in .emacs init file. See comments in mouse.el source file.

comment Boot Camp: is it possible to restart directly to Windows from Mac OS X?
This does work on 10.7 Lion, thank you very much! Bootcamp calls itself "/Volumes/BOOTCAMP" by default. For NTFS write support on Lion, you can use Paragon NTFS - in my opinion definitely worth the time I saved. Also, of course you need sudo in front of shutdown as well, but it's a good idea to try the bless command first and see what it says. About the answer: does anyone know the details of whether rebooting via shutdown -r as opposed to from the Finder has any negative effects on the OS X world - i.e. files getting corrupted or services or other apps getting corrupted by being terminated
