comment Access Finder's “Open With” menu from the commandline (for tab completion)
Can't reproduce that on zsh either, independently from a filename being present before the -a switch or not. I added some suggestions on how to get the list of Applications.

Well, I simply tried that out and neither on my 10.6 nor on my 10.7 system the TAB completion list contains apps or binaries - it simply contains the files contained in the current working directory. On 10.7 the "Open with..." dialog simply opens a folder listing for the /Applications folder anyway, so there is no great magic in how to get that listing.

comment Use hostnames to connect to machines on LAN
I can only recommend that. dnsmasq (the daemon used for DHCP and DNS on OpenWRT systems) will provide you with your hostnames by default. If possible stay away from dd-wrt and choose OpenWRT if the device is sufficiently supported.

I don't know how good the windows support for the whole zeroconf thing is. Maybe it can only resolve others names, but doesn't provide it itself. For a more solid solution you probably want to go the DNS server way, i.e. try to enable that on your router

For indenting more than once, simply use the . key to repeat the last operation

comment Making the Backspace key go to the previous folder in Finder
@Johnny skip all that with XCode and the plist editor, just use the command that Lri suggested. However, as already pointed out by him, using backspace for going back in Finder is not a good idea, since it will also be triggered when you actually want to use backspace (for example when you rename a file and want to hit backspace to erase a character). I guess the best solution is simply to get used to CMD-[ as this is the native keyboard shortcut.

Whats your OS X version? I only have a 10.6 at hand, and here the Finder preferences are definitely stored in that file. $HOME is your homefolder (/Users/<username>).
