Check These Out

Stream audio over ssh
This one doesn't need to convert to wav.

Create a mirror of a local folder, on a remote server
Create a exact mirror of the local folder "/root/files", on remote server 'remote_server' using SSH command (listening on port 22) (all files & folders on destination server/folder will be deleted)

copy with progress bar - rsync
-r for recursive (if you want to copy entire directories) src for the source file (or wildcards) dst for the destination --progress to show a progress bar

Shows cpu load in percent
This version is precise and requires one second to collect statistics. Check sample output for a more generic version and also a remote computer invocation variant. It doesn't work with the busybox version of the 'top' command but can be adjusted

Run a bash script in debug mode, show output and save it on a file
Sends both stdout and stderr to the pipe which captures the data in the file 'out.test' and sends to stdout of tee (likely /dev/tty unless redirected). Works on Bourne, Korn and Bash shells.

Open a file with specified application.
This command require mac os x.

simple du command to give size of next level of subfolder in MB
If you're only using -m or -k, you will need to remember they are either in Megabyte or kilobyte forms. So by using -B, it gives you the unit of the size measurement, which helps you from reading the result faster. You can try with -B K as well.

Execute a command with the last parameter of a previous command
Suppose that you had change in a directory like /home/user/mycode/code, and now you need to list it, instead of type entire path again, use ls !$ to recall path and list. Useful with many commands, this is only an example. (In this case, same result can be achivied with ls .)

Filter the output of a file continously using tail and grep
The OPs solution will work, however on some systems (bsd), grep will not filter the data, unless the --line-buffered option is enabled.

Make a DVD ISO Image from a VIDEO_TS folder on MacOSX
/path/ is the root folder of the DVD, not the VIDEO_TS folder.
