The perl one liner was funny, the shell one liner was light hearted, but your node solution is just pure fanboyism and quite frankly not in line with the spirit of the two previous posts.

-----


And.. the node.js solution doesn't do what either the Perl or shell one liners do. It doesn't tell you whether the password was found in the file. All it does is print out a SHA1 hash of a string.

-----


That's a trivial modification:

    $ echo linkedin | xargs node -e "var x = require('crypto').createHash('sha1').update(process.argv[1]).digest('hex'); console.log(x.substring(5));" | xargs -I {} grep {} hashes.txt
I'm surprised at the backlash to what I thought was fun code golfing. No one called me names after I posted a simple Python solution that didn't check the file. For what it's worth I've changed my LI password and I haven't bothered downloading the actual hash file.

-----


If I post a PHP solution maybe zxcvb will get a heart attack.

-----


node has a neat API for quickly knocking out stuff like this; it's a useful tool for more than just server code. Calling that comment fanboyism is just displaying the opposite of fanboyism, prejudice against hyped-up tools that nevertheless are good tools.

-----


My point still stands. There's funny and then theres blatent fanboyism. You're like a prepubescent teenager who doesn't understand the context of social situations so always says something stupid.

-----


"Which brings us to the most important principle on HN: civility. Since long before the web, the anonymity of online conversation has lured people into being much ruder than they'd dare to be in person. So the principle here is not to say anything you wouldn't say face to face. This doesn't mean you can't disagree. But disagree without calling the other person names. If you're right, your argument will be more convincing without them."

-----


Some people actually do call names to others when face to face.

Personally, while I don't, I do tend to get a little aggressive and then I'm often surprised with the backlash, because I get that way when I'm genuinely enjoying the conversation, not when I'm irritated.

-----


Tone doesn't carry on the Internet, so no one knows you're enjoying it. Hence, it generally degrades the quality of the conversation, which is the opposite of what we want at HN.

-----


No, I'm saying I do that face-to-face, and people still can't tell I'm enjoying it. So the tip to say nothing that you wouldn't say IRL is useless to me; I just can't help it.

-----


"You're like a prepubescent teenager who doesn't understand the context of social situations..."

The hypocrisy is so unabashed my brain might explode.

-----


Pot, meet kettle.

-----


What if google.com isn't resolvable from the host? The quality of person on HN has gone down hill.

-----


You might want to have a look at your own comment history...

-----


You're wrong. You can still be in control of a botnet (for example) even if it gets discovered and you can't spell 'losing'.

-----


And you don't understand the different meanings of control. Controlling as in "issuing commands" is different from controlling an event. As far as I know there were no actual commands being given to Stuxnet. It was made for private networks how could there be?

-----


Downvote, I have no idea what this is by looking at the first few lines of the homepage.

Whow, friend just forwarded this to me. Cool to see my project on HackerNews. I'm still brushing up the docs, not quite perfect yet. But to explain what it does:

Django Facebook enables your users to easily register using the Facebook API. It converts the Facebook user data and creates regular User and Profile objects. This makes it easy to integrate with your existing Django application. After registration it gives you access to user's graph. Allowing for applications such as:

Open graph/ Timeline functionality Seamless personalization Inviting friends Finding friends Posting to a users profile I've built it for my startup Fashiolista.com and it's currently used in production there with thousands of signups per day. For a demo of the signup flow have a look at Fashiolista's landing page (fashiolista.com)

Before you get started building your application, know that contributions are very welcome. Seriously, if you see a bug or think of an improvement just open a pull request or issue. Feel free to contact me if you have questions.

Updates and tutorials can be found on my blog mellowmorning

Further demos and tutorials will soon be available on django-facebook.com

I would downvote this if I could. I have no idea what your reference to 44 points means. Is that good? Is that bad? Why do I need to know?

-----


The number of upvotes on the submission.

Anyway, I thought it was amusing. Sort of like the old Soviet Propaganda about how the US is a capitalistic wasteland of suffering. [0]

-----


It was the total upvotes the article had when I wrote my comment. I found that rather surprising.

-----


I know what the number is ffs.. I just have no context. You were surprised at the votes... Why? You just showed surprise without any explanation.

-----


A very bad UI. I shouldn't have to guess how to go to the next slide.

-----


Might want to stop same IP from posting over and over again...

-----


I added a limit of 15 posts per minute for now

-----


What if you try 1 post per 30 seconds ?

-----


I guess he's NOT GOING TO GET BANNED....

-----


Never EVER say "I should be fired for this". You probably mean it as a little joke. Getting yelled at for screwing up is not the right time to make a joke. Unless of course you are serious, in which case you're an idiot.

Saying something that weird will just make it seem like you don't care or you're weird.

The fact you say you 'find it best' suggests you get shouted at a lot or you are making this up. Either way, you shouldn't be dispensing this kind of nonsense advice to other people who may well follow it.

-----


This is an internet message board, not an concentration camp. Lighten up.

-----


From my experience humour is not tolerated on HN, everyone takes themselves very seriously. If you tell a joke you risk being downvoted into oblivion and/or banned. So yeah, your comparison with a concentration camp might actually be appropriate in this case, at least in terms of atmosphere.

-----


I'm just asking you not to lie or give stupid advice to other users who might take your advice seriously.

You need to grow up.

-----


You're a god? You determine what's stupid or not? You grow up.

-----


Your startup scares me. I don't have much viewable to the public therefore you would rank me pretty low without actually realising that I might be an amazing programmer who has just spent all of his time being amazing rather than being part of the scene.

I hope your software is never taken seriously.

-----


I don't understand why this was down voted? Surely I make a good point? I'm sure there is a lot of amazing talent that don't spend any time at all working on stuff that other people will ever get to see beyond the domain of what they are working on?

Sorry I don't have a github account or a blog but I was too busy making sure Google search actually works.
