comment brew Install xdg-utils
xdg-open is pretty neatly tied into the freedeskop environments, and OSX' counterpart would be the open command. Is there a specific use case where you absolutely need xdg-open? If so, give us more information, please.

comment Why is “java” a valid command in terminal (bash) if it is not in my path?
Additionally, to check all installed and available JDK/SDK on your MacOSX, use the /usr/libexec/java_home -V command.

comment Upgrading and installing packages through the Cygwin command line?
Pardon my late reply. I have just skimmed through the code of apt-cyg on the official googlecode site and to me it looks like the selected download site seems to be http://mirrors.kernel.org/sourceware/cygwin, as specified in findworkspace(), when you haven't specified the mirror using the command line option -m. If you specify the command line, the mirror server information will be written to /etc/setup/last-mirror.

comment How to know current time from internet from command line in Linux?
The two minor drawbacks I see with this approach is that different time zones are not easily supported and no format can be specified in a straight-forward way. To remedy that situation, one could use the time api. For example, to query the actual time for central Europe in a more human legible way, one simply invokes: curl -G --data-urlencode "format=%D-%T\n" http://www.timeapi.org/cet/now?

comment Are flash cookies from different firefox profiles stored separately?
Nicely compiled information; this allowed me to move flash game settings from Chrome on Windows inside Parallels to my MacOSX host into Firefox's shockwave local storage location, and seemlessly continue with my hard-earned game progress ;).

comment How can I find out my WiFi adapter's MAC address on Ubuntu Linux?
In fact quite before that. I remember that we switched our self-made carrier-grade Linux (for ISPs) completely over to iproute2 back in summer of 1999; and before that we had already used it for a couple of months. In 1999, ifconfig was already quite faulty with regard to VPN device setups (secondary IP addresses with aliases), like CIPE for example and exhibited massive race conditions if you had to reconfigure a box with hundreds of running VPN tunnels. Our boxes had up to 16 NICs (quad boards) and route had a problem sometimes displaying our hundreds of routing table entries.

comment How to restore the window of tabs crashed 1 day ago in Google Chrome
@Neberu: I think most people use bookmarks to track important tabs, however every now and then, you open a couple of tabs in a context to have a look at or to later organize into the already existing bookmark structure, when you have to switch the context you're working in to do something else. You make a mental note to come back to the left context later that evening or tomorrow, and each day you look back at your tabs, happy that they are there waiting to be woken up by our context switch to finish what we originally started pursuing. Not sure I explain myself well here ;).
