Paste it!

A while back I was thinking of setting up a personal paste-bin, but obviously that means finding suitable software or writing it. In my case, I’d rather like one that is locked to me or restricted to logins I issue.

But it just occurred to me, that having sufficient access to the system, I can just use vim’s :TOhtml command to export a file as HTML, upload it to a designated area, and have the web server pick it up. Then use a cron-job on the server side to clean out files in that directory every now and then.
