Created April 14, 2013 16:28
Ruby script that uses sequel to populate my new Rails database with data from my old (non-Rails) DB. Used a script instead of a standard Postgres copy to prevent gaps in auto-increment fields.
#!/usr/bin/env ruby
require 'sequel'
require 'pp'
# script to copy data from my old, non-Rails postgres DB to my new rails DB.

# And Lists, which have a number of Items.

Quick-and-dirty utility to: 1) initialize a new git repo in the current directory (git init) 2) add all existing files, and: (git add .) 3) make an initial commit with message 'Initial commit' (git commit -m 'Initial commit') It won't run the commands if a git repo already exists.

OSX can capture WiFi packets using only tcpdump (and without needing a clunky interface such as KisMAC). Used for testing security strength of home WiFi setup.
#! /bin/bash
# This is for Mac OSX only.
# =============================================
# explanation of arguments used with 'tcpdump':
# =============================================
# -y IEEE802_11_RADIO => makes it capture __WIFI__ packets, turns resultant file
# into a dump which can be read by aircrack-ng, etc.
# -I => puts interface into monitor mode (required to capture packets)
