Find broken symlinks
To understand why this is the equivalent of "find -L /path/to/search -type l, see http://ynform.org/w/Pub/FindBrokenSymbolicLinks or look at http://www.gnu.org/software/findutils/manual/html_mono/find.html

Find top 10 largest files in /var directory (subdirectories and hidden files included )
Should work even when very large files exist.

Append stdout and stderr to a file, and print stderr to the screen [bash]
Useful for cron jobs -- all output will be logged but only errors will cause email to be sent. NB the order of "2>&1" and ">> logfile" is important, it doesn't work if you reverse them (everything goes to the logfile, nothing left for tee).

delete all bitbucket repos via rest API v2 (req: jq and curl)
bitbucket paginates at around 1360 characters, so if you have several pages of repos in git hub you can just add "?page={1..4}" the url used to get all the repos. you can also use -v for the deletion curl if you want to see the response from the server.

Count TCP States From Netstat
Counts TCP states from Netstat and displays in an ordered list.

Increment the filename of png in a given directory by one

Tweak system files without invoking a root shell
only for sudo-style systems. Use this construct instead of I/O re-directors ``>'' or ``>>'' because sudo only elevates the commands and *not* the re-directors. ***warning: remember that the `tee` command will clobber file contents unless it is given the ``-a'' argument Also, for extra security, the "left" command is still run unprivileged.

The BOFH Excuse Server

Lookup hostname for IP address

Recursive replace of directory and file names in the current directory.
This should work anywhere perl and grep is available. :P
