If you don’t know about ClusterSSH, it’s a project that builds on M-x term and ssh to offer a nice and simple way to open remote terminals. It’s available in ELPA and developed at github cssh repository. The default binding is C-= and asks for the name of the server to connect to, in the minibuffer, with completion. The host list used for the completion comes from tramp and is pretty complete, all the more if you’ve setup ~/.

First, here’s a way to insert at current position the last message printed into the minibuffer… well not exactly, in *Messages* buffer in fact. I was tired of doing it myself after invoking, e.g., M-x emacs-version. ;; print last message ;; current-message is already lost by the time this gets called (defun dim:previous-message (&optional nth) "get last line of *Message* buffer" (with-current-buffer (get-buffer "*Messages*") (save-excursion (goto-char (point-max)) (setq nth (if nth nth 1)) (while (> nth 0) (previous-line) (setq nth (- nth 1))) (buffer-substring (line-beginning-position) (line-end-position))))) (defun dim:insert-previous-message (&optional nth) "insert last message of *Message* to current position" (interactive "p") (insert (format "%s" (dim:previous-message nth)))) (global-set-key (kbd "C-c m") 'dim:insert-previous-message) Now I stumbled accross Planet Emacsen and saw this Emacs Utility Functions post, containing a version of duplicate-current-line that I didn’t like… here’s mine:
