comment Display cron job times in a human-friendly format
The thing is, it's already human readable. 10 6 * * * -> tenth minute of the sixth hour of every day of every month, on any day of the week. */6 4 */2 * * -> every sixth minute of the fourth hour of every second day of every month, on any day of the week.

comment When I use zip, how can I display the overall progress without flooding the command line?
I don't know if you can use stdin when making ZIP files, but if gzip is okay, you can do something like pv /path/to/file | gzip > /path/to/file.gz

Better use of sed so as not to `sed | grep`

comment Regex search for word roots with common prefixes
I'll update to reflect this - thanks for the tip! Keep in mind that it only works in GNU sed, and not BSD sed.

comment Regex search for word roots with common prefixes
Aha! egrep '^(pro|con).* /usr/share/dict/words | sed 's/^...//' | sort | uniq -d will give you a list of all the word-bases that have both a pro and con prefix!

comment Regex search for word roots with common prefixes
Something like egrep '^(pro|con).*' /usr/share/dict/words might do the trick as a starting point, perhaps. You could then put the resultant list through a sed, awk, or grep meatgrinder that only keeps paired words.
