Paste hardware list (hwls) in html format into pastehtml.com directly from console and return URI.

listhw(){ curl -s -S --data-urlencode "txt=$(sudo lshw -html)" "http://pastehtml.com/upload/create?input_type=html&result=address";echo;}
In this Linux box i need to become root to get the complete hardware list, so either become root before or call it with sudo as i did, your choice.
Sample Output
$ listhw(){ curl -s -S --data-urlencode "txt=$(sudo lshw -html)" "http://pastehtml.com/upload/create?input_type=html&result=address";echo;}
$ listhw

Little modified version. Allows you to pipe the output of any command to pastehtml.com in txt format: pastebin(){ curl -s -S --data-urlencode "txt=$(cat)" "http://pastehtml.com/upload/create?input_type=txt&result=address";echo;} Usage is simple ls -la | pastebin cat text.file | pastebin
