Listen to a song from youtube with youtube-dl and mpv
Explanation Firstly the function checks if user gave it any input, and notifies the user if they failed to do so. If user has inputed a search string, the function will call upon youtube-dl to find url of the audio of the first matching youtube video and play that with mpv. Call function by wrapping search string in quotes: listen-to-yt "sultans of swing" You have to paste the line in your .zshrc and source .zshrc for it to work. Limitations The dependancies are youtube-dl and mpv. this oneliner is stolen from http://www.bashoneliners.com/oneliners/302/

Get AWS temporary credentials ready to export based on a MFA virtual appliance

To print the exports, you can use: `awk '{ print "export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=\"" $1 "\"\n" "export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=\"" $2 "\"\n" "export AWS_SESSION_TOKEN=\"" $3 "\"" }'` You must adapt the command line to include: * $MFA_IDis ARN of the virtual MFA or serial number of the physical one * TTL for the credentials

Host cpu performance
Measure the cpu performance: In-case if the cpu is thermal throttling then you can find it using this command. Check the first line of the output. Example: Doing md5 for 3s on 16 size blocks: 11406892 md5's in 2.98s ? #(When cpu is not throttling) Doing md5 for 3s on 16 size blocks: 110692 md5's in 2.98s ?? #(When cpu is thermal throttling) Practical use case: Once we had cooling outage in data center which caused thermal throttling in some of the worker nodes. We used this tool to prove that some servers are not performing well because of the cpu thermal throttling.
