Look at all the pretty colors

I love it when my terminal looks like somebody vomited all over it. It helps me find the specific chunks of logging data I need to see (pun definitely intended). Here's a list of things to colorize, and how to do them:

Output of ls

ls --color=yes. Even if you pipe it through less, the colored output stays.

File types and extensions

See different colors for different files types and extensions. Add the following to your .bash_profile:
eval `dircolors -p`

Ant

Set this environment variable to get colored output for ant:
export ANT_ARGS='-logger org.apache.tools.ant.listener.AnsiColorLogger'

irb

Use Wirble.

Log4J

Use ANSIColorLayout.

Code on your webpage

Use dp.SyntaxHighlighter (javascript) or Geshi (php only). LousyCoder Blog is powered by the former, and I think it's better anyway.

Maven

I have no clue.
