Lists all files and directories with modified time newer than a given date
This is great for looking for files that have been updated recently. Logs especially or monitoring what files were added during an install.

Stat each file in a directory
Possible simplification of egrep-awk-sort with find and -exec with xargs.

Swap a file or dir with quick resotre
This lets you replace a file or directory and quickly revert if something goes wrong. For example, the current version of a website's files are in public_html. Put a new version of the site in public_html~ and execute the command. The names are swapped. If anything goes wrong, execute it again (up arrow or !!).

Liked command 4077 so I improved it, by doing all text manipulation with sed. "Run this as root, it will be helpful to quickly get information about the loaded kernel modules." THX mohan43u
