Evil Sudo

Like sudo, but evil.

Your coworker walks away from their desk and forgets to lock their computer. Big mistake. You slide over to their desk, run evil sudo, and walk away. Now, when they try to use sudo they will get a confusing error message which you can customize.

Technologies From We Work Remotely

We Work Remotely is a popular job board for remote positions. I wanted to see what technologies were most in demand.

Turns out people like JavaScript and Ruby.
