Stupid df tricks

I was watching over the shoulder of an unnamed kernel hacker this
afternoon and was surprised to see he didn't know about "df -h" or
"du -sh". Go try 'em, I think you'll like

[lm@linux kernel]$ df -h .
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/sdc 8.2G 3.5G 4.5G 44% /home/ftp/pub

better than

[lm@linux kernel]$ df .
Filesystem 1024-blocks Used Available Capacity Mounted on
/dev/sdc 8572561 3719507 4675240 44% /home/ftp/pub

For the more pedantic out there, there is also

[lm@linux kernel]$ df -m .
Filesystem MB-blocks Used Available Capacity Mounted on
/dev/sdc 8371 3632 4565 44% /home/ftp/pub
