Suicide Linux

qntm came up with the idea, and someone else dutifully turned it into a distro.

You know how sometimes if you mistype a filename in Bash, it corrects your spelling and runs the command anyway? Such as when changing directory, or opening a file.

I have an idea: Suicide Linux. Any time – any time – you type any remotely incorrect command, the interpreter creatively resolves it into rm -rf / and wipes your hard drive.

It’s a game. Like walking a tightrope. You have to see how long you can continue to use the operating system before losing all your data.

pass–the standard unix password manager

pass is a command line password manager for various *nix platforms.

Password management should be simple and follow Unix philosophy. With pass, each password lives inside of a gpg encrypted file whose filename is the title of the website or resource that requires the password. These encrypted files may be organized into meaningful folder hierarchies, copied from computer to computer, and, in general, manipulated using standard command line file management utilities.

pass makes managing these individual password files extremely easy. All passwords live in ~/.password-store, and pass provides some nice commands for adding, editing, generating, and retrieving passwords. It is a very short and simple shell script. It’s capable of temporarily putting passwords on your clipboard and tracking password changes using git.

There is also an Android client available.

The Fuck–Linux App That Corrects Console Commands

The Fuck is an open source app designed to correct basic mistakes when entering console commands in Linux.

The Fuck attempts to match the previous command with a rule. If a match is found, a new command is created using the matched rule and executed.

The tool can be extended with customized rules.
