PyImgur has been updated with some clipboard goodness. 
Check it out, alias it up (alias grabs="scrot -s -e 'python handler.py \$f'"), and profit!

"And I would actually claim, and this is an old argument going back to [Michael] Faraday, that research that is directed towards immediate practical ends is in general not going to be truly revolutionary and the truly revolutionary advances often come from stuff which does not tick the immediate application box."

If you have a Pandora account, I highly recommend using a throwaway password for it (assuming you don't do so already).

Why? Because Pandora doesn't even one-way hash their passwords. If your account is logged in on a computer, anyone who sits down at that computer can go and look up your password on Pandora's settings page.

Attached is an image that shows what that settings page looks like upon load - I haven't manually entered anything into the form fields and I don't use Chrome's auto-fill; the text in the fields is populated by Pandora.... including the plaintext of the password.

Things like this are why I wrote a blog post about how to do web app auth correctly:

Thanks to +Dan Boger for bringing this up.
