Easy copy and paste of network settings System
This may be already known but I noticed that you can easily copy your IP address to the clipboard by simply control-clicking on your IP address in System Preferences:Sharing or System Preferences:Network and selecting Copy in the contextual menu. This is even of broader scope since you can also copy your router address, ethernet address and probably some other data.

[Editor's note: It seems you can use this little trick on just about any text box in the System Prefs application.]

Actually... any Cocoa app

This will work in any Cocoa App that hasn't provided a custom contextual menu.

Text-- whether editable or not-- is just another object and behaves with all of the behavior provided by default in Cocoa.

Regular copy command available

Once you select it (which is needed to get the contextual menu), copy is available by keyboard or menu item.
