A fast and easy file sharing application. Upload a file and it generates a unique link (even for duplicates). Send the link to someone and they can download the file with it. You can set a password on the site to control who can use it. Links can be set to self-destruct. No database required, just PHP. Encryption optional. Cronjob to delete old files. Comes with a PoC bash script for uploading from the command line.
This package provides a library and a command-line tool named wormhole, which makes it possible to get arbitrary-sized files and directories (or short pieces of text) from one computer to another. The two endpoints are identified by using identical “wormhole codes”: in general, the sending machine generates and displays the code, which must then be typed into the receiving machine.
The codes are short and human-pronounceable, using a phonetically-distinct wordlist. The receiving side offers tab-completion on the codewords, so usually only a few characters must be typed. Wormhole codes are single-use and do not need to be memorized.
Can also be used as a module called from other code.

How to recover files that have accidentally been deleted with 'svn delete'.
To recover a file from svn that you deleted from your local repository, it’s first necessary to get the proper name of the file, and the revision of the repository it last existed in. To do that (assuming you don’t know, because if you do you have bigger issues), you go to the directory it was in (or as close as you can get to the directory it was in) and run:
svn log --verbose
You should be able to find the file you’re looking for and the revision you need in the output of that command. Assuming your file’s name is ‘file.txt’ and it was in revision 250, you run the following to recover it:
svn up -r 250 file.txt
