qaisjp / download.php
Created Aug 12, 2013
Assuming you have a "www" folder inside a "web" folder. You'd have a tree like: "/downloads/", "/www/download.php", this prevents hotlinking from avoiding download counts. This also just throws the actual file to the user as if they were downloading the file directly, instead of forwarding them to another file, reducing the number of HT…

"" => True;

Keybase proof

I hereby claim:

  • I am qaisjp on github.
  • I am qaisjp ( on keybase.
  • I have a public key whose fingerprint is 5D90 87F0 7DC7 E6CB 1CE0 814A 39A7 A845 3517 B0FD

To claim this, I am signing this object:


I don't know if we've been taught the general method for De Morgan's, but I'll say it anyway:

  • NOT the whole sentence
  • NOT each item in the brackets (direct children only)
  • INVERT each AND/OR. This makes AND become OR, and vice-versa (direct children only)

When I say direct children only, I mean that if you have (A or (B and C)), you should end up with not (not A and not (B and C)) by De Morgan's.

You should NOT end up with not (not A and (not B or not C)).


Setting up an autossh reverse tunnel

1. Set up sshtunnel user

Follow this tutorial until step five-ish

If the test does not work because of "public key" issues, run sudo passwd sshtunnel on the server to change the password of the user. (If sudo tail -f /var/log/auth.log says the account is locked, this will be the issue.)

authorized_keys should look a little like:
