looking for files not subversioned
En entornos de desarrollos muchas veces se mezclan ficheros y debemos revisar si algo se nos ha quedado fuera del proyecto. Con esta linea de comando busco todos los ficheros que no sean M ( modificados ) para valorar si tengo que agregarlo al repositorio de subversion. Adem?s siempre se me olvida como usar un condicional con awk para una columna :D

check open ports without netstat or lsof

shell equivalent of a boss button
Nobody wants the boss to notice when you're slacking off. This will fill your shell with random data, parts of it highlighted. Note that 'highlight' is the Perl module App::highlight, not "a universal sourcecode to formatted text converter." You'll also need Term::ANSIColor.

coloured tail
tail with coloured output with the help of perl - need more colours? here is a colour table: http://www.tuxify.de/?p=23

Expand shortened URLs
This relies on a public API from http://longurl.org. So, this has the weakness that if the service disappears, the function will break. However, it has the advantage that the shortened URL service will not be tracking your IP address and other metrics, but instead will track longurl.org. Thus, you can remain anonymous from the shortened URL services (although not anonymous from longurl.org). It does no sanity checking that you have provided an argument. If you do not provide one, "message" is displayed to STDOUT.

Alias for lazy tmux create/reattach
If a tmux session is already running attach it, otherwise create a new one. Useful if you often forget about running tmuxes (or just don't care)
