Check These Out

find and delete empty dirs, start in current working dir

Write comments to your history.
A null operation with the name 'comment', allowing comments to be written to HISTFILE. Prepending '#' to a command will *not* write the command to the history file, although it will be available for the current session, thus '#' is not useful for keeping track of comments past the current session.

List files with full path
Prints contents of current directory with the full path prepended to each entry. You can add '-type f' if you don't want the directories to show up (for those less familiar with find). I can't believe ls doesn't have an option for this.

delete files containing matching text
-r recursively -Z zero byte after each file name instead of the usual newline -l only filenames

Show current working directory of a process

see the TIME_WAIT and ESTABLISHED nums of the network
see the TIME_WAIT and ESTABLISHED nums of the network

RTFM function
Same as the other rtfm's, but using the more correct xdg-open instead of $BROWSER. I can't find a way to open info only if the term exists, so it stays out of my version.

Which processes are listening on a specific port (e.g. port 80)
swap out "80" for your port of interest. Can use port number or named ports e.g. "http"

Joins args together using the first arg as glue

Compare two files side-by-side
I found out about this from Unix Power Tools, and thought it was pretty useful. Use the -w option to change the width of the output, and the -s option to suppress lines that are the same in both files.
