comment Abbreviated current directory in shell prompt?
I feel that one of the functions of SE is to not only provide the perfect answer to the question, but also to provide other options for the OP and others who find the question through searching. Notice the answer context I provided "I like... works for me." Still some believe it deserves a down vote.

comment Abbreviated current directory in shell prompt?
@nicerobot Yeah, you had the real answer. :) I know it doesn't give the abbreviation he was asking for, but often when we see simple options our expectations change. Also, it is standard, and as such I felt it deserved a mention.

comment Capturing area of the screen without a Desktop Environment?
Ok, I can attest to the fact that I'm often caught speaking out of my class. Yes it is 1024x768, but my X screen is 1366 and that's part of what made the fbgrab output look so bad. 1366 is the native width and it is sharp. 1024x768 is fuzzy. From the console it looks nicely antialiased, but a picture of it is just ugly. :) I stand corrected!

comment Thunar using no thumbnailers except built in fonts and images
Yes. It's been a couple weeks I've been banging head. I've known that the cache seems to be correct for several days, just today I decided to recompile again. And then after being right back where I started I decided to post the question. IT SHOULD WORK! :)

comment Capturing area of the screen without a Desktop Environment?
I had problems with fbgrab. I can attest that my frame buffer is 1366x768 but both fbgrab and fbshot think /dev/fb0 is 1024x768, which scales the console fonts and makes me sad. When I give fbgrab the width and height it says there is not enough data.

comment How to execute consecutive commands from history?
Scrabblefinder.com says reinvoke is a valid Scrabble word. Can't get any more definitive than that. :)

I think the word you were looking for is 'reinvoke'. It's great info though. +1

comment How to filter wvdial/pppd terminal output
What I've settled on, is redirect to a log file so I capture all output. Then tail -f, piped through grep -v, piped through sed to colorize. I looked at multitail for colorizing, but it looks like it has a learning curve of its own. If I've gotta learn something, at this point it should be regex and the standard tools. :) Thanks for your input!
