Display summary of git commit ids and messages for a given branch
In color. Additionally you may define in your ~/.gitconfig and run it just as 'git one': one = log --pretty='format:%Cgreen%H %Cred%ai %Creset- %s'

Do some learning...
Just realized how needless the 'ls' has been... This version is also multilingual, since there is no need to grep for a special key word ("nothing"/"nichts"/"rien"/"nada"...). And it makes use of all the available horizontal space.

cd into the latest directory

Get a list of IP Addresses that have failed to login via SSH
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)

Copy 3 files from 3 different servers and adds server name tag to file copied

Fetch the current human population of Earth

find the path of the java called from the command line
The output will likely point to '/etc/alternatives/java'. So find out where that points by issuing ls -l like this: ls -l /etc/alternatives/java

Find usb device
I often use it to find recently added ou removed device, or using find in /dev, or anything similar. Just run the command, plug the device, and wait to see him and only him

Change pidgin status
Thanks for the comment oshazard, i wasn't aware of purple-remote existence.
