Check These Out

Find usb device in realtime
Using this command you can track a moment when usb device was attached.

Remove a range of lines from a file
Deletes lines from START to END, inclusive. For example +4,10d will delete line 4, 5, ..., 10. Just like the vi command :4,10d does it.

mplayer -af scaletempo
Pitch-correct play speed with mplayer. You can also use [] and {} keys to change play speed on-the-fly.

Dump the root directory to an external hard drive
This will compress the root directory to an external hard drive and split it to parts once it reaches the 4 Gigs file system limit. You can simply restore it with: $ restore ivf /media/My\ Passport/Fedora10bckup/root_dump_fedora

Sort IP addresses
Sort IP address by order

add the result of a command into vi
':r!ls -l' results in listing the files in the current directory and paste it into vi

Read aloud a text file in Mac OS X

finding cr-lf files aka dos files with ^M characters
Looking for carriage returns would also identify files with legacy mac line endings. To fix both types: $ perl -i -pe 's/\r\n?/\n/g' $(find . -type f -exec fgrep -l $'\r' "{}" \;)

Remove annoying files from recently extracted zip archive
Inspired by http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/view/2573/remove-all-files-previously-extracted-from-a-tar.gz-file. .... yet for zip files

Puts every word from a file into a new line
Simply translates whitespace to newlines. Could be enhanced to compress out extra newlines, but that might be better handled in the next tool down the pipe, with eg uniq(1).
