there's the tac command. always fun. if you play with text a lot,
it's good to know about cut, paste and join.
*some* people i know are big fans of xargs, and of course sed and

a nice utility for diskusage: xdu. it's also one of the only x
programs i know that uses pipes: du|xdu. redhat users will need

so i hope it's one.
