subtraction between lines
It's allways strange for me to see sed and awk in the same command line if you can avoid it

Append last argument to last command
Just like "!$", except it does it instantly. Then you can hit enter if you want.

'readlink' equivalent using shell commands, and following all links
This is a equivalent to the GNU ' readlink' tool, but it supports following all the links, even in different directories. An interesting alternative is this one, that gets the path of the destination file $ myreadlink() { [ ! -h "$1" ] && echo "$1" || (local link="$(expr "$(command ls -ld -- "$1")" : '.*-> \(.*\)$')"; cd $(dirname $1); myreadlink "$link" | sed "s|^\([^/].*\)\$|$(dirname $1)/\1|"); }

Print line immediately before a matching regex.
Use this if you don't have access to GNU grep's -B option.

Stop All Wine Apps and Processes
kills all wine running apps and processes. Make a hotkey for it when running wine games in fullscreen and it locks. This is a great way to escape from it.

Number of files in a SVN Repository
This command will output the total number of files in a SVN Repository.

currently mounted filesystems in nice layout
since fuse mounts do not appear in /etc/mtab (fuse can't write there, dunno if it would if it could) this is propably a better way.

Remount root in read-write mode.
Saved my day, when my harddrive got stuck in read-only mode.
