Useful Slashdot Threads

Venerable tech discussion site Slashdot seems to have lost its way a bit in recent years, but occasionally it comes up with some useful stuff apart from tired memes ("In Soviet Russia Natalie Portman pours hot grits into your pants"), such as the following three threads which contain a mixed bag of readers' Unix, vi (vim) and Emacs tricks.

Of course, there are more than one or two tricks I'm personally familiar with, but also a whole boatload of stuff where you have to think "Why didn't I know this before (or think to find out if such a thing exists)?". Such as generic auto-completion in Emacs, "Meta-/".
