comment How to browse a website as if I am in USA?
(by the way, I have to type in a password to log into myserver.com... so no ssh key is set up yet... does that make a difference?)

comment How to browse a website as if I am in USA?
so you mean on my local machine (my Macbook), I type ssh -D 8080 myusername@myserver.com which will actually log me in at myserver.com and give me a Bash. And then change the Web Proxy HTTP and HTTPS on my Macbook to localhost:8080? Can't make it to work so far... for one thing, I think my dreamhost machine is not running a proxy program that can help forward the traffic yet?

about ssh and tunneling... or can I start some command on the dreamhost shell and make it a proxy for myself?

comment how do you sort du output by size?
do you mean putting the first set of code into a file called ducks, and then chmod a+x ducks and then use ./ducks to run it? Then I only see the total disk usage, on both Mac OS X and on Ubuntu 2014-10. I also tried putting the ducks() { ...} definition into .bashrc and then use ducks to run it, and the same thing on Mac OS X, only see the grand total

comment How to tell the sizes of files and folders, sorted, and in MB, GB, instead of a long integer?
hm... and I think this solution uses 2 passes of du... maybe better if it can be 1 pass. But thanks for the commandlinefu.com pointer
