I was setting up a VPN client on a server and found myself querying my external IP address quite often (to check whether I was connected to the VPN or not).
As you know,
curl icanhazip.com or
curl ifconfig.me will give you your external IP. (You did know that, right? If not, congratulations, your life as a sysadmin has just become easier!) However, we can make that even shorter by simply using bash’s aliasing ability. Just type into your terminal session:
alias extip="curl icanhazip.com"
And now you can simply:
I prefer to call it efficiency, rather than laziness.
I have recently finished my vwo extended paper (profielwerkstuk)!
Later, I might write a bit more here. For now, there isn’t a lot of time for that, because I have way too much exams to study for :(
So. I have a blog now.
I guess it’s rude of me not to introduce myself. I’m Jamy. (Hi!) I’m a 16-year-old dude who, as of now, has a blog.
What will I blog about? I honestly don’t know either. I spend most of my time behind a screen, so at least some of my posts will probably be about tech-related stuff. But computers are not the only thing in my life, so there will probably be other stuff as well.
We’ll see. It’ll be fun!
