We all love short scripts
Authored by: lullabud on Jul 18, '07 04:19:47PM
The man page for `jot` tells us to take out the grep command shown above:
20 random 8-letter strings are produced with
    jot -r -c 160 a z | rs -g 0 8
Hence, the above script could be shortened to jot -rc 12 33 127 | rs -g 0 12 (for all shift-chars + alphanumeric)
