ls and find

I'm all the time learning new things about unix command. Recently, I found new feature of ls and find command.

ls -Ssh
-S lists files and directories in size order,
-s prints size,
-h does it in human readable way.

find -mtime -1
-mtime looks for files modificated later/earlier/exactly n days from now (in my example today and yesterday).
