Release Notes

Listen, it's just a stupid curl request piped to pbcopy. But it's faster than loading the WordPress Secret Key Generator and copying the results manually.

Since I deal with at least a couple exploited WordPress sites a week — and regenerating the keys is always a part of my WordPress cleanup workflow — I'm sort of scratching my own itch here. And while I'm not sure if anyone else will find this useful, I still figure that it's worth sharing.
