The Hastebin service and software covered in a previous article may seem bare-bones, but it's not the simplest tool around. This title belongs to the nnmm web app. It consists of a simple PHP script and an accompanying database, and you can use the hosted version of the app at https://nnmm.nl/. There is actually no point in visiting the place in the browser, as the app doesn't have a web interface. You have to use the curl tool to push the output of a command to the nnmm.nl service, for example:

echo "Monkey loves banana." | curl --data-urlencode @- nnmm.nl
cat foo.txt | curl --data-urlencode @- nnmm.nl

When you run the command, the server returns a short URL to the posted text. It couldn't be more simple, really.
