From bash to clipboard in X

4. Juli 2009 Keine Kommentare

I recently had the workflow of opening a file in an editor, copying its content just to paste it into
another one. There had to be another way to do this. It was xclip. With xclip you can insert ‚things‘ from Stdin or from a file!

xclip -i file.txt inserts the content from file.txt into the clipboard from X!

It does naturally also work the other way round. with xclip -o you insert the content of the X clipboard into the current bash-shell. Comes in handy for scripting 😉

Strange Google-Error

I was recently invited to a picasa photo-album, the image store service from google. When I clicked on the link to see details about the user, I received a very strange error message:

The page at http://picasaweb.google.ch says:
Something unusual has happened. hopefully, it is so unusual that you will never see this dialog again.
Error: -1

mash yubnub

31. Januar 2009 1 Kommentar

a usefull thing is to mash up yubnub commands:

to launch a search for the term ‚einstein‘ in wiki, google and google image: ‚mash2 einstein -cmd wp g gim‚ which creates
a framed page with all three resultpages. The result above is certainly not representative, as it is not very readable, unless you have a huge screen.

A more useful version would be ‚mash2 torchwood -cmd epguide iso‚, which displays the result of episodeguides.com and the search result of isotorrents for the tv series named ‚Torchwood.

You can use this command also with no searchstring at all. For example, if you are a baduk player like me:
mash2 -cmd dgos ogs‚ which displays the games stats on the dragongoserver and online-go.com.

Most of the yubnub commands are also in my wiki

added later: On a website of one of the commentors (yeah, I actually had one), there is also the option multi instead of mash. Thanks for your article gomelet

yubnub commands for go players

30. Januar 2009 Keine Kommentare

I recently restarted to play go, also on some turn-based go servers.

Usually I go to the servers website and check my games. I play on these servers:

Therefore I created two yubnub commands to display my game stats directly

dgos displays status on the dragongoserver
ogs displays game status on the online-go server

A command that was already created was sensei which does a search on the go wiki

If you don’t want to use findjar, you can use a groovy script.
