Disable System Beep  

Linux insists on beeping at you. this isn't just any beep, however... it is a system beep. Impervious to the mute button on your computer. If the startling, abrupt sound is like nails raking over a chalkboard to you, then this trick will let you kill that little beep forever.


sudo rmmod pcspkr

...and enjoy the silence.

Download A Website  

You might find a website so good you just have to save it to a hard drive. Other times, you might need to archive a website before it goes under and find it easiest to download the entire site at once. To do this with the Terminal, type:

wget -r

.... to download it all.
