Ooh, I had forgotten about that site... Thanks!
My other favorite scripting resource is the most excellent Rob Van der Woude pages, even though there's no Bash love there :(

Still, thanks for reminding me about Shelldorado!

Thanks for this link.  About to take a look :)

Don't know if you've seen this already, but the following from Shelldorado was new to me:

By the way, did you know that the command line

    $ ls -bart -simpson -is -cool

is a valid usage for the SOLARIS ls command?

 ;D

It's actually functionally equivalent to "ls -bartsimponcl" because all those letters are simply arguments that can be passed to the ls command and splitting the arg line and repeating letters doesn't affect the operation.

Still; quite amusing.
