originally, the script was intended to be a quick offline way of wiping your
FLASS without checking home to mother. the curl trick was something i found
handy when i didn't have flasswipe installed on a system already. i have
flasswipe run every time i start a gnome or KDE session, and my browser
seems to be happier for it.


picture a world where you need to go to
to manage your browser cookies.

better yet, imagine a world where you have to go to
to empty your recycle bin.

sure, you could trust macromedia, but they are in it for the single purpose
of business growth for the shareholders to make a profit.

i'm in it because i want open source to rule everything from voting machines
to pocket watches.

make your trust decision based on that.

BTW an easy way to install it is
*curl* *html://www.slauce.com/flasswipe > ~/flasswipe*
then you can just *~/flasswipe* to run it whenever.

*curl html://www.slauce.com/flasswipe*
will print the script to the terminal so you can read it first, if you still
have a trust issue.
