Check These Out

Get all IPs via ifconfig
Fetches the IPs and ONLY the IPs from ifconfig. Simplest, shortest, cleanest. Perl is too good to be true... (P.S.: credit should go to Peteris Krumins at catonmat.net)

Numerically sorted human readable disk usage
Provides numerically sorted human readable du output. I so wish there was just a du flag for this.

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"

Show complete URL in netstat output
This takes all of the tab spaces, and uses column to put them into the appropriately sized table.

Check whether laptop is running on battery or cable

Write comments to your history.
A null operation with the name 'comment', allowing comments to be written to HISTFILE. Prepending '#' to a command will *not* write the command to the history file, although it will be available for the current session, thus '#' is not useful for keeping track of comments past the current session.

Insert the last argument of the previous command
for example if you did a: $ ls -la /bin/ls then $ ls !$ is equivalent to doing a $ ls /bin/ls

Delete recursively only empty folders on present dir

Check your unread Gmail from the command line
notice what happens when there is more than one unread message in a thread... also people please dont hardcode the password when you use curl. Leave it out and curl will ask you when it runs. Please...?

Cut flv video from minute 19 to minute 20 using flvtool2
We should calculate the video duration to milliseconds, 1 minute = 60000 milliseconds
