Find today created files

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

Find your graphics chipset
Displays only the VGA adapter/chipset being used for the graphics. In this case, it gave me the "M22" and "Mobility Radeon x300" that I needed to research a graphics issue I was having.

find geographical location of an ip address
I save this to bin/iptrace and run "iptrace ipaddress" to get the Country, City and State of an ip address using the http://ipadress.com service. I add the following to my script to get a tinyurl of the map as well: URL=`lynx -dump http://www.ip-adress.com/ip_tracer/?QRY=$1|grep details|awk '{print $2}'` lynx -dump http://tinyurl.com/create.php?url=$URL|grep tinyurl|grep "19. http"|awk '{print $2}'

SAR - List the average memory usage for all days recorded under '/var/log/sa/*' using sar -r.

identify NEEDED sonames in a path
This works in combination with http://www.commandlinefu.com/commands/view/10496/identify-exported-sonames-in-a-path as it reports the NEEDED entries present in the files within a given path. You can then compare it with the libraries that are exported to make sure that, when cross-building a firmware image, you're not bringing in dependencies from the build host. The short version of it as can be seen in the same output is $ scanelf -RBnq -F "+n#f" $1 | tr ',' '\n' | sort -u

Quick HTML image gallery
My take on the original: even though I like the other's use of -exec echo, sed just feels more natural. This should also be slightly easier to improve. I expanded this into a script as an exercise, which took about 35 minutes (had to look up some docs): http://bitbucket.org/kniht/nonsense/src/7c1b46488dfc/commandlinefu/quick_image_gallery.py

use xxd to create the wake on lan magicpacket and write to pcap file
just set macdst to the mac address of the system you wish to wake up, the macsrc is optional but helps use tcpreplay to broadcast or wireshark to view
