    I especially like using find for modified/accessed/created files, which mike covered earlier in that series. He didn’t mention my favorite part though which is piping to arguments to get more information as follows:

    find . -mtime -1 | xargs ls -l -a

    Can you tell I have a habit of frequently forgetting what I’m working on and what I saved *that* file as?
