comment OS X Terminal equivalent of Ctrl+Left / Ctrl+Right
Esc is never a modifier, it's just going into "Escape" mode when you press it, consider it a modal way of doing things, unlike shift/ctrl/meta etc. (in the Readline scheme of things anyway.)

Well, if it respected line-breaks it might even be useful ;) -- Try cupsfilter instead to convert to PDF, it also skips the unnecessary PS-PDF conversion.

if you tire of long pathnames like this, try locate airport - you could run it with $(locate airport | grep 'Priv')

Imgur is a much better choice than DropBox. Try this script. figbug.com/?page_id=29
