Tips: Linux/Unix world
The up/down arrrow keys are very useful for bringing back commands you've executed, but sometimes it can take a while until you find one you want. Use [CTRL]+r instead to bring up the (reverse-i-search)`': prompt where you can enter in any letter/word combination that was in the command you want to recall.
