Several years ago I made a first version of a “curl HTTP cheat sheet” to facilitate the most common curl command line options when working with HTTP.
This has now been refreshed after I took lots of feedback from friends on twitter, and then worked on rearranging the lines and columns so that it got as compact as possible without sacrificing readability (too much).
I got this neat t-shirt in the mail yesterday. 3scale runs a sort of marketing campaign right now and they give away this shirt to the ones who participate, and they were kind enough to send one to me!
As usual, us volunteers are given a tshirt for our efforts and this year’s version looks like shown below. My son Rex was very happy to do the modeling, even though I think the size is slightly too big for him…
It’s green, and straight out of the FedEx shipping box it certainly is very wrinkled. This is the Google Summer Of Code tshirt 2010. I got it from a friendly delivery person just a couple of minutes ago.
I got it for my participation in the gsoc program for the Rockbox project. I’ve been an admin and mentor previous years, and this year I co-admined our group’s efforts.
What doesn’t a man do when there’s a free t-shirt involved?
I was Google Summer of Code admin for project Rockbox, and it did result in some cool new code. As newbies this year we of course did a bunch of mistakes that we hope to get a chance to correct if we’re allowed to participate again…
I also volunteered as a mentor, but we had something like nine or ten guys stepping forward, we got a lot of students applying for various projects but in the end we were given four slots by Google so I ended up not having to mentor anyone this time.
Apparently, this involvement was good enough for me to be given a shirt, and it arrived in my mailbox today and I took a few crummy shots with my lousy camera in my phone and I thought I’d share them with you!
On the backside there’s this weird face with a monster-like guy (much appreciated by my daughter!) with binary numbers in its mouth. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the binary does mean something if we translate it to ascii… for a second or two I was about to investigate it, but then I lost my motivation and bah, why bother?!
