Check These Out

list files in mtime order
Simple but useful; list files in the current directory in mtime order. Useful if you've been working on something and then take a day or two off.

Check if it's OK to spawn tmux. Bool's Rools.
The command cechks if we are connected to a X11 console, if the $TERM var noct yet contains a "screen" derivat, and only then attachs to tmux. You could add a test for interactive shell [[ $- == *i* ]] but your .bashrc has that already, I bet.

list files recursively by size

Fetch every font from dafont.com to current folder
Requires aria2c but could just as easily wget or anything else. A great way to build up a nice font collection for Gimp without having to waste a lot of time. :-)

Find default gateway

Get AWS temporary credentials ready to export based on a MFA virtual appliance
You might want to secure your AWS operations requiring to use a MFA token. But then to use API or tools, you need to pass credentials generated with a MFA token. This commands asks you for the MFA code and retrieves these credentials using AWS Cli. To print the exports, you can use: `awk '{ print "export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=\"" $1 "\"\n" "export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=\"" $2 "\"\n" "export AWS_SESSION_TOKEN=\"" $3 "\"" }'` You must adapt the command line to include: * $MFA_IDis ARN of the virtual MFA or serial number of the physical one * TTL for the credentials

Get all IPs via ifconfig
and, a lot uglier, with sed: $ ifconfig | sed -n '/inet addr:/s/[^:]\+:\(\S\+\).*/\1/p' Edit: Wanted to be shorter than the perl version. Still think that the perl version is the best..

Execute a command at a given time
This is an alternative to cron which allows a one-off task to be scheduled for a certain time.

Put a console clock in top right corner
Gives not only date but also some interesting status about the System
