This repository contains a number of utilities I find useful on MIT's Athena systems. eatdir A really simple script for creating a new directory and moving all adjacent files to it. Useful for e.g. creating parallel versions of some directory tree (e.g. if you want to move all old stuff to "spring11" so you can create a "fall11"). dropbox/ A system for creating "semi-Public" folders for sharing data with specific people. Features automatic setup for cert-protected web access. fixlink A simple script for removing intermediate steps in links. This is particularly useful for when you have some directory structure containing symlinks to /mit/... paths that you want to put on the web. web.mit.edu doesn't have the /mit automounter, so a file which is a symlink to /mit/foo/bar will not work; fixlink will detect the intermediate /mit/foo->/afs/athena.mit.edu/users/f/o/foo link and will replace the original's file symlink accordingly. get-7.012-video A really quick and dirty wrapper I wrote for downloading videos for 7.012 (so you can play them on your own player instead of online). Currently only set up for Fall 2011, though it should not be hard to set up for other semesters. Requires rtmpdump. mtree/ A simple library for quickly querying large Moira lists. Provides two scripts --- one for recursively walking down a tree (can deal with cycles, unlike rblanche!) and one for quickly determining whether a particular user is on a given list (or any sublist) temperature A simple scraper for http://thefuckingweather.com. It prints out the temperature to STDOUT, which makes it nice to incorporate it into other software. I use it in Barnowl. wrappers/ A collection of really simple wrappers (so far just "athrun...") for scripts in other people's lockers that I nevertheless find useful.
