  • This checks the system load every second and if it's over a certain threshold (.8 in this example), it spits out the date, system loads and top 4 processes sorted by CPU. Additionally, the \a in the first echo creates an audible bell.

Do Google search from that command line opening into a new Firefox tab.
Usage: google "[search string]" Example: google "something im searching for" This will launch firefox and execute a google search in a new tab with the provided search string. You must provide the path to your Firefox binary if using cygwin to $ff or create an alias like follows: alias firefox='/cygdrive/c/Program Files (x86)/Mozilla Firefox/firefox.exe' Most Linux flavors with Firefox installed will use just ff="firefox" and even OSX.

list block devices
Shows all block devices in a tree with descruptions of what they are.

Clone or rescue a block device
If you use the logfile feature of ddrescue, the data is rescued very efficiently (only the needed blocks are read). Also you can interrupt the rescue at any time and resume it later at the same point. http://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/ddrescue.html

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"

Get your bash scripts to handle options (-h, --help etc) and spit out auto-formatted help or man page when asked!!
This will make your bash scripts better!! process-getopt is a wrapper around getopt(1) for bash that lets you define command line options (eg -h, --help) and descriptions through a single function call. These definitions are then used in runtime processing of command line options as well as in generating help and man pages. It also saves a little time in coding and in producing nicely formatted documentation. It is quite similar to GNU's argp in glibc for compiled languages and OptionParse for python. See: Linux Gazette article 162: http://tldp.org/LDP/LGNET/162/hepple.html, http://sourceforge.net/projects/process-getopt, http://bhepple.freeshell.org/oddmuse/wiki.cgi/process-getopt

Find and copy scattered mp3 files into one directory
I used this command to recursively gather all mp3 files that were previously imported into their own directories (sorted by band name) in Songbird.

Another Matrix Style Implementation
A bit different from some of the other submissions. Has bold and uses all c printable characters. Change the bs=value to speed up and increase the sizes of the bold and non-bold strings.
