Very useful for logs
This command shows a sorted list of the IP addresses from which there have been authentication errors via SSH (possible script kiddies trying to gain access to your server), it eliminates duplicates so it's easier to read, but you can remove the "uniq" command at the end, or even do a "uniq -c" to have a count of how many times each IP address shows in the log (the path to the log may vary from system to system)
Play local mp3 file on remote machine's speakers through ssh
with a semicolon text file map, apply multiple replace to a single file
This one is a bit more robust -- the remote machine may not have an .ssh directory, and it may not have an authorized_keys file, but if it does already, and you want to replace your ssh public key for some reason, this will work in that case as well, without duplicating the entry.

pub key in ./ssh/authorized_keys needed because ssh-ed ssh can't ask for the password.

if you want to replace "foo" with "bar" in all files in a folder, and put the resulting files into a new subfolder
Using large wordlists is cumbersome. Using password cracking programs with rules such as Hashcat or John the ripper is much more effective. In order to do this many times we need to "clean" a wordlist removing all numbers, special characters, spaces, whitespace and other garbage. This command will covert a entire wordlist to all lowercase with no garbage.
