NCurses DU or NCDU:
One of our family friends came over tonight complaining of her cursor going missing after applying the Windows 8.1 upgrade to her new laptop. After a lot of fussing with it for 20 minutes and some google-fu I found this thread:

Now that Google Apps is no longer free many of us have been left high and dry as far as offering high quality groupware/webmail to our customers and friends. Windows Live Domains is certainly not as polished as Google Apps was but it is certainly still free. A major frustration however is the lack of the ability to create aliases in the WebUI. Many users want to have an address like contact@ aliased to themselves at auser@. Microsoft has not provided a way to do this easily via their UI. Fortunately someone has stepped in with wlalias an open source tool that makes adding an alias as easy as:
wlalias add firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
