Check These Out

LIst svn commits by user for a date range
Outputs a quick summary of the svn commits for a user over a date range with the detail revision logs including comments and files affected. Useful for searching for a particular change or reporting by user.

list files recursively by size

Get your commandlinefu points (upvotes - downvotes)
This version prints current votes and commands for a user. Pass the user as an argument. While this technically "fits" as a one liner, it really is easier to look at as a shell script with extra whitespace. :)

Make sure a script is run in a terminal.
Exit with error if script is not run in a terminal

Deal with dot files safely

print line and execute it in BASH
If script.sh contains only these two lines: $ uname -a $ whoami

Rename files in batch

Reboot as a different OS in Grub
This will reboot as the Grub 2 option.

Print stack trace of a core file without needing to enter gdb interactively
This does almost the same thing as the original, but it runs the full backtrace for _all_ the threads, which is pretty important when reporting a crash for a multithreaded software, since more often than not, the signal handler is executed in a different thread than the crash happened.

Get your external IP address
Yeah I know it's been up here a million times, but this service is a really clean and nice one. Nothing but your IP address on it. Actually I was to write something like this, and noticed this on appspot... ;)
