The Y Combinator

The Y Combinator is a classic lambda calculus construct that many people find baffling. Here's my attempt to explain it as clearly as possible (no promises!). Familiarity with Haskell syntax is assumed.

The problem we're trying to solve is how to write an anonymous function (a "lambda") that is recursive. Normally, if you want to write a recursive function, it looks like this:

fac n = if n == 0 then 1
        else n * fac (n-1)

How to copy/paste your password in PayPal's change password form
View gist:3654637
PayPal blocks copy/paste actions in their "change password" form,
citing some irrelevant security issues as the reason. That's a
load of crap, and they know it -- disabling copy/paste makes it a
lot harder to use a decent password generator and a lot easier to
screw up your pwd when retyping, especially if it's a long one
(as it should be!).
So, here's the quick'n'dirty way to use an externally generated
password in your PayPal account:

git-rr: show which files were changed in commits, when rebasing
View git-rr
# Usage:
# Once you started git rebase --interactive master, and you are presented
# with the list of commit SHAs and commit messages, from Vim:
# - visually select all SHAs via "V}k"
# - launch git-rr: !git-rr
# - ...
# - profit! you now have the same info as before, just with the list of
# filenames which changed with each commit, and can now move around
