Clock at the top-right corner "instead of" on the taskbar

I like an auto-hiding taskbar, but a downside to it is that the clock is always hidden. Not that it's tremendously hard to just move the mouse over it in order to raise the clock again, but at the same time, often there is wasted space near the upper-right corner, that could well be used for a clock.

The easiest way to do it is simply with the osd_clock program:

osd_clock -t -o -10 -r -s 1 -c "#DCDCDC" -F "%a %d %b %y %I:%M __________________________________________"

Handy 1-liner script to copy link addresses in Firefox just by hovering and pressing a key

Let's say, there is a page with several interesting podcasts, you want to download several of them, not all. Don't bother with dozens of right-click-copy-url-then-go-and-paste-somewhere-somehow. Just hover the link and press a custom key that runs this script line:

Code:
xdotool click 3 && xdotool mousemove_relative 5 5 && xdotool key a && echo "$(xclip -o)" >> /dev/shm/ffclipboard
