online MAC address lookup

Get Dollar-Euro exchage rate
You can get others rates changing the "EUR/US" part. look at the url: wap.kitco.com/exrate.wml to get more options.

Smart `cd`.. cd to the file directory if you try to cd to a file
This little function will smarten 'cd'. If you try to cd into a file (which I guess we all have done), it cd's into the directory of that file instead. I had to use nesten if's, to get cd to still work with 'cd' (to get to $HOME), 'cd -' (to get to last directory), and 'cd foo\ bar'.

encrypt whole line with ROT13 in vim

Detect illegal access to kernel space, potentially useful for Meltdown detection
Based on capsule8 agent examples, not rigorously tested

list block devices
Shows all block devices in a tree with descruptions of what they are.

Grab an interface's IP from ifconfig without screen clutter
Sometimes, you don't really care about all the other information that ifconfig spits at you (however useful it may otherwise be). You just want an IP. This strips out all the crap and gives you exactly what you want.

Create a mirror of a local folder, on a remote server
Create a exact mirror of the local folder "/root/files", on remote server 'remote_server' using SSH command (listening on port 22) (all files & folders on destination server/folder will be deleted)

move you up one directory quickly
In bash, this turns on auto cd. If a command is just a directory name, it cd's into that directory.

check the fucking weather
grab the weather, with a little expletive fun. replace the 48104 with a US zipcode, or the name of your city (such as ZIP="oslo"), unless you want to know what the weather is like for me (and that's fine too)
