Geolocate a given IP address

Print current running shell, PID
works as well as echo $0, but also prints process id, which pts you're using. echo $SHELL doesn't always get updated when changing shells, so this is a better solution than that. Just one more variation on a theme.

drop first column of output by piping to this
An advantage is that this doesn't modify remained string at all. One can change {0,1} with {0,n} to drop several columns

Rename files in batch

follow the content of all files in a directory
The `-q' arg forces tail to not output the name of the current file

Display the standard deviation of a column of numbers with awk

Shows physically connected drives (SCSI or SATA)
This will show all physically connected SATA (and SCSI) drives on your system. This is particularly useful when troubleshooting hard disks.... or when a mount point seems to be missing.

Find the package that installed a command

find all writable (by user) files in a directory tree (use 4 for readable, 1 for executable)

Speed up launch of liferea
If you use liferea frequently, you will see obvious speedup after you executed this command.
