Impressive post! I remember when I found ncdu it was an amazing day. It's by far my favorite tool to find what's taking up my disk space! I really hope more people use it as a result of your excellent post!
ncdu is great, it's what du should have been. Writing this post, I found a few other commands and flags that I forgot about / never learned about. One of my favourite ones is the -p flag to mkdir, which will create all missing intermediate directories! Small things like that can save you lots of time.
