Check These Out

Find usb device in realtime
Using this command you can track a moment when usb device was attached.

Find the package that installed a command
Put this one-line function somewhere in your shell init, re-login and try $ whatinstalled This is an elaborate wrapper around "dpkg -S", with numerous safeguards. Symlinks and command aliases are resolved. If the searched command is not an existing executable file or was installed by some other means than dpkg/apt, nothing is printed to stdout, otherwise the package name.

check open ports without netstat or lsof

Show a random oneliner from commandlinefu.com
This will parse a random command json entry from http://commandlinefu.com A must have in your .bash_profile to learn new shell goodies at login!!!

Facebook Email Scraper
(Apparently it is too long so I put it in sample output, I hope that is OK.) Run the long command (or put it in your .bashrc) in sample output then run: $ fbemailscraper YourFBEmail Password Voila! Your contacts' emails will appear. Facebook seems to have gotten rid of the picture encoding of emails and replaced it with a text based version making it easy to scrape! Needs curl to run and it was made pretty quickly so there might be bugs.

Sorted list of established destination connections
no need grep. its redundant when awk is present.

Tells you where a command is in your $PATH, but also wether it's a link and to what.
You may also use the $(which foo) variant instead of backticks. I personnaly have an alias ll='ls -l'.

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"

Count number of hits per IP address in last 2000 lines of apache logs and print the IP and hits if hits > 20

Convert df command to posix; uber GREPable
It is a pain grep-ing/sed-ing/awk-ing plain old df. POSIX it!
