Open the current terminal path in the Finder UNIX
In the "Open this folder in the Terminal" hint, there was a little exchange about how to do the opposite - how do you open the current Terminal path as a folder in the Finder?

Marc responded with the answer (as a comment) before I could get this new tip published, but I felt it was worth a separate entry to make finding it easier in the future.

To open whatever Terminal path you are currently traversing in the Finder, simply type:
open .
and a new Finder window will open up with the directory's contents -- notice the "." at the end; if you leave it out, nothing will happen. Marc also mentioned a couple of other "GUI/Terminal" integration tools - pbcopy and pbpaste, which duplicate copy and paste in the Finder.
