list files in mtime order
Simple but useful; list files in the current directory in mtime order. Useful if you've been working on something and then take a day or two off.

top accecpts a comma separated list of PIDs.

Shows space used by each directory of the root filesystem excluding mountpoints/external filesystems (and sort the output)
Useful to see at glance which directory under the root file is using most space

wget multiple files (or mirror) from NTLM-protected Sharepoint
If you have to deal with MS Sharepoint which is (rarely, let's hope) used in e.g. certain corporate environments). This uses Cntlm. For single files, just use cURL -- its NTLM authentication works quite well. # /etc/cntlm.conf: # Username account # Domain domain # Password ############ # Proxy 10.20.30.40 (IP of the sharepoint site) # NoProxy * # Listen 3128

Rename all .jpeg and .JPG files to .jpg
