There was a question on SO on how to calculate someones current age in years. It's a simple enough operation using Joda-time ( I thought I'd turn my example into a gist, if anyone else is interested. It's easy to turn this into something that would calculate the age in days or months or whatever... Please tell me if…
import org.joda.time.DateTime
import org.joda.time.Years
def calculateAgeInYears(int year, int monthOfYear, int dayOfMonth) {
def yob = new DateTime(year, monthOfYear, dayOfMonth, 0, 0).toDateMidnight()
def now =
return Years.yearsBetween(yob, now).getYears()
def years = calculateAgeInYears(1983, 12, 10)

Read resource file using Scala
* I do this often enough to merit a Gist, but not often enough to remember by heart. Maybe someone else has the same problem.
* The ".mkstring" part can of course be altered to something else as needed, if you don't want a String
val jsonMsg: String = Source.fromURL(getClass.getResource("/json/test1.json")).mkString

At work, we keep reinstalling our test servers. I use this script to remove outdated known_host keys
# When the error message says something to the effect of
# Offending ECDSA key in /Users/xxx/.ssh/known_hosts:52
# Use the script like this:
# > rmhost 52
# to remove line 52 from the known_hosts file
# NB! Naturally, make sure to KNOW that the key is ok to be removed. Like the warning says

An XSLT transform I use for converting itt-formatted subtitles to srt-formatted subtitles
<?xml version="1.0"?>
This will convert itt-formatted subtitles to srt-formatted subtitles (or captions, if you prefer that)
Use it like so (using xsltproc in this example, feel free to use whatever engine you like):
# xsltproc itt-to-srt.xslt input_in_itt.itt >
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

I use this script to create a bunch of fake docker images, so I can test my (upcoming) CLI app for removing them
