Check These Out

Know SELinux status
Usefule to check whether SELinux is in force or disabled. Though you need to be superuser while execute this command.

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

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"

Check the status of a network interface

random git-commit message
Do a git commit using a random message.

count how many cat processes are running
'ps ax' provides the fill list of running processes. 'grep -c [c]at' will find all processes that match 'cat' without matching itself....

list files recursively by size

Git diff last two commits
How about this one ?

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

check the status of 'dd' in progress (OS X)
"killall -USR1 dd" does not work in OS X for me. However, sending INFO instead of USR1 works.
