My top tip right now for any command line cowboys (like me) is to install “ack” as it’s saving me time and irritation.

It is for searching for exact terms or regexps in a directory tree, just like grep -r, but with all the .svn and other crap filtered out. Many people I know have written their own hacky tools to do this, but “ack” is a better solution.
