Having a graphical FTP program (such as Filezilla) open can be handy when you are accessing a remote device via a terminal. Not only can you quickly get familiar with the directory structure, but you can do some file system operations such as creating directories, searching, and even editing files with the convenience of a graphical interface but without running a GUI on the remote device.
Life Pro Tip
When someone sends you a link to a shared file (like in a Google Drive, Dropbox etc.) and you open it and are confused by the contents… wait a minute and check the link again. There’s a good chance they uploaded a file, looked at it, realized they uploaded the wrong file, and are frantically uploading the right one.
Making an application save its log file in your Dropbox is an easy way to monitor it remotely, even from your phone.
Note that many Android text editors can’t handle huge files, but browsers can.
Trying to capture a fast signal with as much detail as possible? Turn off the other channels on your oscilloscope. They may be reducing the sampling rate on the channel you’re interested in.
