Check These Out

add all files not under version control to repository
This should handle whitespaces well and will not get confused if your filenames have "?" in them

generate random password
for Mac OS X

Get your public ip

Extract android adb ab backup to tar format (only works for non encrypted backups)

Create a thumbnail from a video file

Better recursive grep with pretty colors... requires ruby and gems (run: "gem install rak")

Show a notify popup in Gnome that expires in specified time and does not leave an icon in notifications tray
Tested in Gnome 3.4

git remove files which have been deleted
I've used technicalpickles command a lot, but this one handles whitespaces in filenames. I'm sure you want to create an alias for it :)

ssh tunnel with auto reconnect ability

Use md5sum to check your music and movie files. Also use diff.
This is a beginning script. You can create a file with > filename. You can also use diff to compare output run at different times to verify no change in your files. I apologize in advance if this is too simple. For some it should be a start.
