List only locally modified files with CVS

Get your external IP address
Yeah I know it's been up here a million times, but this service is a really clean and nice one. Nothing but your IP address on it. Actually I was to write something like this, and noticed this on appspot... ;)

Count accesses per domain
count the times a domain appears on a file which lines are URLs in the form http://domain/resource.

Url Encode
This one uses hex conversion to do the converting and is in shell/sed only (should probably still use the python/perl version).

Show which programs are listening on TCP and UDP ports
-p Tell me the name of the program and it's PID -l that is listening -u on a UDP port. -n Give me numeric IP addresses (don't resolve them) -t oh, also TCP ports

Run a program transparently, but print a stack trace if it fails
For automated unit tests I wanted my program to run normally, but if it crashed, to add a stack trace to the output log. I came up with this command so I wouldn't have to mess around with core files. The one downside is that it does smoosh your program's stderr and stdout together.

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"

currently mounted filesystems in nice layout
Particularly useful if you're mounting different drives, using the following command will allow you to see all the filesystems currently mounted on your computer and their respective specs with the added benefit of nice formatting.

Clean pacman cache in arch linux, manjaro linux
If not success clean cache and try again Code: [Select]

Boooted as EFI/UEFI or BIOS
