History is great for this 

I have in .bashrc 
alias h='history'

so when I get stuck just type h | grep "the ball park command" 
then to run just type !(the command no) and it all comes flooding

ie I can never remember the commands for rsync 

so  h | grep rsync

361  sudo rsync -avz /var/www/ kevinspc:/var/www/html

so running !361 

will back up my web server..
