I would like to use http://pastie.caboo.se/paste/4703 from the command 
line, but the syntax escapes me :(

thufir@arrakis ~/Desktop $ 
thufir@arrakis ~/Desktop $ cat pbpaste.rb 
#!/bin/sh
# With a little automator workflow, quicksilver magic, and a judicious
# placement of pbpaste on the next line you can paste with almost no 
effort at
# all.
url=$(curl http://pastie.caboo.se/pastes/create \
    -H "Expect:" \
    -F "paste[parser]=plaintext" \
    -F "paste[body]=<-" \
    -s -L -o /dev/null -w "%{url_effective}")

echo -n "$url" | pbcopy
echo "$url"
thufir@arrakis ~/Desktop $ 
thufir@arrakis ~/Desktop $ ruby pbpaste.rb 

how do I generate a URL like wgetpaste does?

thufir@arrakis ~/Desktop $ 
thufir@arrakis ~/Desktop $ 
thufir@arrakis ~/Desktop $ wgetpaste

ahhh, this one works fine from gentoo.                  
Your paste can be seen here: http://rafb.net/p/UpiiMu57.html
thufir@arrakis ~/Desktop $ 



thanks,
