Check These Out

Resize photos without changing exif
To resize photos without changing exif datas, pretty cool for gps tagging. (Require ImageMagick)

Set executable permissions on a file under Subversion

Pretty man pages under X

Write comments to your history.
A null operation with the name 'comment', allowing comments to be written to HISTFILE. Prepending '#' to a command will *not* write the command to the history file, although it will be available for the current session, thus '#' is not useful for keeping track of comments past the current session.

Add an iptables rule on RH/CentOs before the reject
Rather then editing the /etc/sysconfig/iptables file, or during a kickstart doing some awk/sed magic, easily add a rule in the correct place within iptables

Install pip with Proxy
Installs pip packages defining a proxy

Run the last command as root
Useful when you forget to use sudo for a command. "!!" grabs the last run command.

calulate established tcp connection of local machine
If you want prepend/append text just wrap in echo: $echo Connected: `netstat -an|grep -ci "tcp.*established"`

Real full backup copy of /etc folder
Yes, rsync(1) supports local directories. And, should anything change, it's trivial to run the command again, and grab only the changes, instead of the full directory.

Execute a command on logout
Execute a command on shell logout,and run it until is finished,then shell is closed.
