Twitter + Bash == Bad Idea

This guy has been looking at the CPAN module for Twitter and noted that the rather amsuing possibility of writing a script to allow you post to Twitter from the command line and then setting the following,

PROMPT_COMMAND='history | tail -n 1 | /path/to/'

Do that, and as he says, people really will know what you're doing RIGHT NOW! If you don't get it don't worry, it is quite amusing though. Made me laugh anyway.

I thought that pl stood for Poland, so all geeks heading there? Sadly, unlikely, as Poles are (despite recent reports) all over here, and now using their money to start their own businesses, which, with their work ethic, will do well.

.pl = Perl script
