comment Users in /etc/passwd on Mac OS X
It's not installed in the advertised location, nor does it appear in spotlight. Looks like my password file is lying to me.

comment Linux to Windows file
scp is fully supported on Linux so you can use that. You would probably do better to ask on serverfault for how to use scp

comment Unix 'grep' for a string within all gzip files in all subdirectories
+1 That's really nice. I hadn't realised that xargs passed more than one argument. Much of my *nix command line-fu is 20 years old and I don't think xargs did that 20 years ago.
