Check These Out

Show CPU usage for EACH cores

df output, sorted by Use% and correctly maintaining header row
Show disk space info, grepping out the uninteresting ones beginning with ^none while we're at it. The main point of this submission is the way it maintains the header row with the command grouping, by removing it from the pipeline before it gets fed into the sort command. (I'm surprised sort doesn't have an option to skip a header row, actually..) It took me a while to work out how to do this, I thought of it as I was drifting off to sleep last night!

Convert CSV to JSON
Replace 'csv_file.csv' with your filename.

Temporarily suspend and unsuspend a foreground job
Press ^Z, do what you need to do on the shell, then input % to resurrect the suspended job.

Send apache log to syslog-ng
Send apache log to syslog-ng server without change configuration of syslog. Just add in httpd.conf or vhost conf.

show each new entry in system messages as a popup
It willl popup a message for each new entry in /var/log/messages found on the notify-send howto page on ubuntuforums.org. Posted here only because it is one of the favourites of mine.

An easter egg built into python to give you the Zen of Python

Read random news on the internet
sort -R randomize the list. head -n1 takes the first.

search installed files of package, that doesn't remember his name well. On rpm systems
rpm, sometimes, is not wildcard friendly. To search files installed from package this could be useful. change PACKAGENAME to any package do you want to search

Quick searching with less
This command enables the user to append a search pattern on the command line when using less as the PAGER. This is especially convenient (as the example shows) in compressed files and when searching man pages (substituting the zcat command with man, however).
