Use curl to quickly send files to gist.

Feel free to use my heroku hosted service, or run your own.
curl to gist
I'm sometimes on a new machine and I'd like to stash something quickly. Rather than setup the gist tool, I'd like to just curl the file and get back an anonymous private gist.
cist does that.
Curl the file you want to gist
$ curl -sT index.js cist.mdp.im # => https://gist.github.com/ed946bc6572be36f75e5
This will return a gist URL with a single file named 'index.js' with the contents of index.js
