Number file

Kill google chrome process
This one liner is to kill all google chrome tabs. This works similar to $ killall firefox command which is to kill all firefox processes.

Trojan inverse shell
To connect to the shell run: $ nc server.example.org 2000

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

Install pip with Proxy
Installs pip packages defining a proxy

Check for Firewall Blockage.
This is just one method of checking to see if an IP is blocked via IP tables or CSF. Simple and to the point. Replace xx.xx.xx.xx with the IP you wish to check.

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"

Remove invalid host keys from ~/.ssh/known_hosts
Useful if you have to tunnel ssh through a local port and it complains of the host key being different. Much easier than manually editing the file.

Lists all usernames in alphabetical order
Save some CPU, and some PIDs. :)

Get HTTP status code with curl
