comment Copy files without encryption (ssh) in local network
@ManuelSchneid3r: Yes: under a Host section in your ssh_config, use Ciphers arcfour,blowfish-cbc to mirror the above -c switch. However, if your CPUs support the AES-NI instruction set, I'd try switching to aes128-gcm@openssh.com (yes, that's the cipher name, including the @ stuff), which will use the blazingly fast (with AES-NI) AES128-GCM.

comment A shell tool to “tablify” input data
I like the man page: "columnate lists". Similar to "tablify".

You can also do $(< file1.txt) and avoid using cat.

comment Launching application from terminal
As Caleb said below, a convenient shortcut to disown/background a process in zsh is &!. Combined with the >& shortcut to redirect STDOUT and STDERR, I've made a convenient alias: alias -g S='>& /dev/null &!', to be used like so: gedit S. This allows me to completely detach it and ignore any output it may give all in one fell swoop.

comment Did I delete the whole debian root server?
GNU rm will accept either the uppercase or lowercase r to recurse.

comment Vim keybinding to delete up to (but not including) the next period
Wow, that's excellent. Exactly what I was looking for, actually; it neatly sidesteps the entire problem I was having. I'm going to have to spend some time reading the motions in the Vim docs.

Also, I thought the only way to delimit the search for \. from :noh was to use :normal so that I could use <cr>. But with ^M, this isn't necessary. (Without the ^M, it was searching for \.:noh instead.)

The first doesn't work for a case like $('div').remove() (to use a contrived example) where I want to remove $('div') to place it in a variable. But your ^M trick does work; I didn't even think of that. The final result is map <leader>. d/\.^M:noh<cr>. Thanks. :)
