F*EX use case: publish screenshots

I often have to send/publish screenshots.

Of course, one can attach them to e-mails, but this will not work for usenet or trouble ticket systems, where you have only a text field.

My solution for Linux is "publish screenshot" with:

  alias pss='fexsend -KM="X-$(date -r $HOME/X.png +%Y%m%d%H%M)".png $HOME/X.png .'

  framstag@moep: pss
  Server/User: http://fex.belwue.de/framstag
  Recipient: framstag@rus.uni-stuttgart.de (autodelete=NO,keep=5)
  /home/framstag/X.png: 27 kB in 0 s (291 kB/s)
  Location: http://fex.belwue.de/fop/EYwUqRmz/X-201308251547.png

The alias pss creates an unique URL (with time stamp) which you can add wherever you want.
The screen shot image will be shown directly in any webbrowser.

To create the local screenshot file X.png you can use for example: scrot ~/X.png
