Check These Out

list files recursively by size

import a new set of files located in a local directory into a remote Subversion repository

Filter the output of a file continously using tail and grep
The OPs solution will work, however on some systems (bsd), grep will not filter the data, unless the --line-buffered option is enabled.

generate iso

List all commands present on system
List all commands present on system by folder. $PATH contains all command folder separated by ':'. With ${PATH//:/ }, we change ':' in space and create a list of folder for ls command.

Display rows and columns of random numbers with awk
Displays six rows and five columns of random numbers between 0 and 1. If you need only one column, you can dispense with the "for" loop.

Show linux kernel modules dependencies
Use modprobe to list all the dependencies of a certain kernel module. Handy when debugging system issues.

BIGGEST Files in a Directory
Find biggest files in a directory

Check whether laptop is running on battery or cable

Unrar multiple directories into current working directory
Grabs all rar files in any current subdirectories and feeds it to unrar. Doesn't work well with things packaged like file.part01.rar. Works best with File.rar. You can recurse into other directories by adding more /*'s
