A DESTRUCTIVE command to render a drive unbootable
Overwrites the boot sector. Since this doesn't overwrite any data, you can usually recover by re-creating the partition table exactly the same as before you zeroed it. This can also help sometimes if you install a new drive in a Windows machine which can't read it.

ItemsListtoAvoid (A) could be a list of files with a special characteristic to exclude. It can be a result of previous processing list, ex. a list of files containing a special string. AlItemsList.txt (B) Is a complete list of items including some or all items in A. $Difference is saved in ItemsDifference.txt

shell function to make gnu info act like man.
I use this alias in my bashrc. The --vi-keys option makes info use vi-like and less-like key bindings.

A "Web 2.0" domain name generator and look for register availability
You would need pwgen installed first, on ubuntu you can get it by apt-get $ sudo apt-get install pwgen

STAT Function showing ALL info, stat options, and descriptions
This shows every bit of information that stat can get for any file, dir, fifo, etc. It's great because it also shows the format and explains it for each format option. If you just want stat help, create this handy alias 'stath' to display all format options with explanations. $ alias stath="stat --h|sed '/Th/,/NO/!d;/%/!d'" To display on 2 lines: $ ( F=/etc/screenrc N=c IFS=$'\n'; for L in $(sed 's/%Z./%Z\n/'

Application network trace based on application name
This command takes an application name as an argument and then it will listen to the tcp traffic and capture packets matching the process Id of the application. The output shows: local address / local port / Remote Address / Remote port / State / Owning Process ID

Print all commands of a user on commandlinefu.com
This utilizes the Requests and BeautifulSoup libraries in Python to retrieve a user page on commandlinefu, parse it (error-tolerant) and extract all the lines of the following format: gzip * To print them, a list comprehension is used to iterate over the values, and join() is called on a newline character.

Create date-based tgz of current dir, runs in the background, very very cool
This is freaking sweet!!! Here is the full alias, (I didn't want to cause display problems on commandlinefu.com's homepage): $ alias tarred='( ( D=`builtin pwd`; F=$(date +$HOME/`sed "s,[/ ],#,g"
