I have used this script to export all private keys in a wallet. The blockchain does not have to be synced, but the wallet obviously has to be unlocked (with walletpassphrase). No warranty. more

CSS-only Terminal

2014-11-29

Recently I wanted to nicely format some code, so I made a CSS-only terminal. The reason I think this one is nice is that it doesn't require any superfluous or non-semantic markup. It is very lightweight, which is good, but wasn't made to be interactive. It doesn't mimic any particular … more

I received an emergency call from a client, his WordPress site didn't work. None of the logins either. Well, here's another script to the rescue if all you have left is an ftp login or some other way to upload files. It will create a new admin user with the … more

The pepperflashplugin-nonfree package in wheezy-backports is broken, as it downloads the flash plugin from the latest chrome release and installs it.

Django-filter and custom querysets

2014-03-21
