Big list of http static server one-liners

Each of these commands will run an ad hoc http static server in your current (or specified) directory, available at http://localhost:8000. Use this power wisely.

Little Snitch Script to block Ad Servers
View LittleSnitch_Block_List.md

Here is a script to take the hosts from From http://pgl.yoyo.org/adservers/ and convert them to rules for Little Snitch.

It has options to grab the entire list or grab new entries past a certain date.

Just grab the output and copy/paste into Little Snitch.

The script is written to block access to any process, any port. You can also delete those lines and it will only block Mail. Or use the options to enter any process, port or protocol you want to block.

Deep Work

Cal Newport

These notes are specific to me, I have cherry picked the points that I find most important. Thus, it is an incomplete summary of Deep work. It is however, thorough enough for me. I would suggest reading the book and making your own notes before going through mine.


Deep Work: Professional activities performed in a state of distraction-free concentration that push your cognitive capabilities to their limit. These efforts create new value, improve your skill, and are hard to replicate.

A Beginner's Hip Hop Playlist

Edit: After some constructive feedback on hacker news, I think that it's worth mentioning that this playlist is very skewed towards recent material, although I've included some essentials from the past.

I think that hip hop is one of the most, if not the most, misunderstood genres of music. In this playlist, rather than focusing on one artist or one type of hip hop, I tried to give examples of a bunch of different artists with songs ranging from the early 90's all the way up until 2017. The songs are in no particular order and the sounds cover a very broad spectrum. Some of them are pretty damn explicit, so I wouldn't necessarily throw this playlist on if there are kids around. I provided the lyrics to each song, the sub-genre that I'd put the artist in (very rough), and a brief description. This playlist is not by any means meant to be comprehensive and in many cases doesn't necessarily represent the artist's "best" song, but instead aims at exposing you to some of my fa
