Sick of having to click on a window, then click on the button you think you already clicked on? Paste this into a terminal:

I've developed a little script over the years that dumps production databases, and loads them locally on demand, and its been very handy.
However, it was taking ages to load a database on a Virtualbox ubuntu environment I use for debugging with Zend.
