A few useful linux commands

Check size of directories in your account (size in MB):

   du -s -m *              # size of files/directories not beginning with "."
   du -s -m .[a-zA-Z0-9]*  # size of files/directories beginning with "."
   man du                  # manual page with more information
Using -h instead of -m gives results with variable units.
