    I don't. Generally use wormhole to provide a file to someone else directly
    or
    just post it on one of my websites
    or
    just email it.

    I think the last pastebin was the ubuntu.com one.
    Used to use *******, but that was at least a year or two ago because it had a very easy CLI interface:
    Code:
    cat $LOG | curl -F '*******=<-' http://*******.us
    Update: Never would have thought these forums would censor the name. It isn't a "bad" word, at least in this part of the world.

    Suppose you are using IRC chat to find a solution to your problem & they ask you to provide the output of a particular command how do you send it ?
    Isn't posting it to your website a overkill in such a case ?
    Definitely cant use email.

    paste.ubuntu.com
    but posting a txt file to a website takes next to no effort. Using paste.ubuntu.com is harder.

    It will be deleted in 5 days from now. Used this command or that:
    Code:
    $ echo "rm linuxyogi "|at now + 5 days
    Websites are often just text files. Put some other text file in the directory structure at the correct location and **bam** there's a 1-to-1 URL for that file. It is only webapps that might break that. Most of my websites are simple text files with fancy CSS. Just a few actally are webapps with a dbms. Running a little web server with static files is pretty easy and fairly unhackable. It is the webapps that are hacked all the time.

    paste.ubuntu for damn near everything. just habit. don't have a specific reason.

    True but then you might get less hits due to people from a Windows background who have lived their whole life learning not to download random stuff because anything can screw you over? Is why I use a paste site personally. Theoretically more exposure. I've been running various Linux's for a few years now, I'm still scared to download random stuff that people post. Even when it is just a .txt file and knowing what I know.
