Check These Out

Sets shell timeout
Useful in root's .profile - will auto-logout after TMOUT seconds of inactivity. Close after `seconds` inactive. export TMOUT=seconds (unefunge)

Count git commits since specific commit

Find the package that installed a command

Create a git alias that will pull and fast-forward the current branch if there are no conflicts
This command will first add an alias known only to git, which will allow you to pull a remote and first-forward the current branch. However, if the remote/branch and your branch have diverged, it will stop before actually trying to merge the two, so you can back out the changes. http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-pull.html Tested on git 1.5.6.1, msysgit (Windows port) Actually this is not really the way I want it. I want it to attempt a fast-foward, but not attempt to merge or change my working copy. Unfortunately git pull doesn't have that functionality (yet?).

repeat any string or char n times without spaces between
(here is character '+' repeated 80 times) Sometimes needed to enhance the title of the script.

Remount root in read-write mode.
Saved my day, when my harddrive got stuck in read-only mode.

If run in bash, this will display all executables that are in your current $PATH

Get your Tweets from the command line
Gets the latest Tweets in your friends timeline from Twitter. Uses curl and xmlstarlet.

Remove duplicate entries in a file without sorting.
Using awk, find duplicates in a file without sorting, which reorders the contents. awk will not reorder them, and still find and remove duplicates which you can then redirect into another file.


Stay in the loop…

Follow the Tweets.

Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.
