Check These Out

Display kernel profile of currently executing functions in Solaris.
Lockstat will sample the kernel 977 times per second, and print out the functions that it sees executing on the CPU during the sample. The -s 10 switch tells lockstsat to not only print that function, but also show the call stack (up to 10 deep).

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

Unlock your KDE4 session remotely (for boxes locked by KDE lock utility)
Do the unlock KDE screen saver locked session with lightdm display manager used in Kubuntu 12.10 +

find an unused unprivileged TCP port
Not really better - just different ;) There's probably a really simple solution out there somewhere...

Convert an existing Git repo to a bare repo
If you want to turn a Git repo into the origin that folks can push to, you should make it a bare repository. See: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2199897/git-convert-normal-to-bare-repository

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

Connect to TCP port 5000, transfer data and close connexion.
With no '-q 0' switch, nc simply waits, and whatever awaits the data hangs.

looking for files not subversioned
En entornos de desarrollos muchas veces se mezclan ficheros y debemos revisar si algo se nos ha quedado fuera del proyecto. Con esta linea de comando busco todos los ficheros que no sean M ( modificados ) para valorar si tengo que agregarlo al repositorio de subversion. Adem?s siempre se me olvida como usar un condicional con awk para una columna :D

Count number of files in a directory
Just want to post a Perl alternative. Does not count hidden files ('.' ones).

Colorizes an access log
Puts a splash of color in your access logs. IP addresses are gray, 200 and 304 are green, all 4xx errors are red. Works well with e.g. "colorize access_log | less -R" if you want to see your colors while paging. Use as inspiration for other things you might be tailing, like syslog or vmstat Usage: $ tail -f access.log | colorize
