Display stock data for S&P 500 (@arawde)

You can replace ^GPSC with other symbols (GOOG, etc) and it should work the same. -A 31 gets one month after given date. Dividing field 5 by varying numbers scales the graph to more readable form.

curl http://www.optiontradingtips.com/resources/historical-data/sp500/%5EGSPC.TXT --silent |
    grep "20100331" -A  31 |

Record how much time you spend on daily practice (guitar, etc) (@dbalatero)

Number of commits in a repo, by author, over time plus consistent scaling (@kablamo)

Usually you cannot compare spark graphs because the scale not consistent between any two graphs. git-spark solves this problem with its --scale option.
