Very useful tip in Linux for taking a screenshot showing the contents of a a single window.

-{homer@homer-H55-USB3 } $ scrot -t 9 -s term.jpg

With this command just run the command and then click the window you want to capture and it will save a screenshot of the contents of the window and not the window borders. This is very useful for capturing something you want to show online quickly.
