SSL certs are automatable and free now with letsencrypt. No reason to not keep this place around so we can all be embarrassed by our 14yo selves.

+1 to letsencrypt - I come by and laugh at how dumb I once was/how much has not changed.

Can just cron renewing the cert, too, as simple as:

Code: [Select]
$ certbot renew --standalone

that's Acrobat Reader not PDF

i use Foxit PDF Reader and it loads in about a second
Omg, you got a fact right! But still, 1.3 MB is rather large for a screenshot :P

Haha.  That is puny!

Hah, I have literally ~30gb of games if I installed all of the installers I have. And then if you add all the CDs I have, probably another 6-7 gb. ;)

Wooooah there!

Funny how shit has changed in a decade w/ tech.

How's life at Yahooooooooooooooo?

He works at the purple company?

@sidoh: Busy. Real busy. Good news is my brilliance is recognized on a daily basis at work, bad news is I'm not the CEO yet. Working on it. :(

@joe: I have for quite a while now! Where have YOU been?

More likely it was this:

Quoting posts appears to be broken for me..


:)

RESOLVED - WORKSFORME.  My favorite way to close a bug!

REOPENED - if you click "Insert Quote" while you're already posting a quote, say, if I were trying to quote Sidoh..

<here's where the quote would be if it worked>

.. that's the quote method that's broken. It's valid!

General Discussion / An MMPI exam
« on: August 21, 2013, 11:09:39 pm »
A while back I took an MMPI exam a friend administered. It was pretty awesome. Flash forward a few years and I discover http://hacker.psychologi.st/ -- it'll even do the interpretation of your response (which is the annoying part). If you're concerned with having your personality displayed on the internet, take comfort in the fact that the site doesn't appear too popular and there's nothing to tie any submission to you save for an IP, and if you're that worried just use Tor. You should be using Tor for anything you do anyway, especially if you live in the good ol' US of A!

Take note that there's no point in lying on the exam, it just makes the results inaccurate and what's the point in learning something untrue about yourself?

This works well enough, but I feel like there has to be a better way.

This seemed promising but I haven't tried it myself. Yet!

Also of productive note, totally not about IDEs but related to vim so it's noteworthy: vimium has also increased my productivity, I pretty much only have to use the mouse to navigate webmail* or do mouseovers. Or control Pandora. Thankfully it's a radio and takes care of itself most of the time.

Newby, do you have any experience with setting up SSH sessions in tmux? I generally have four servers I want open connections with. Unfortunately, I have to use sudo to switch users, so I need to enter my password. I'm not super pleased with my solution, but it works. Any ideas?

I work with a couple dozen or so servers on the daily. A properly configured config file (in ~/.ssh) is necessary. Not sure what you're getting at with sudo-to-switch-users, you can NOPASSWD sudo for your account or you can put the key in the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys account of the account you want to log in as.

Code: [Select]
$ grep -A 4 whatever.you.want.to.ssh.to ~/.ssh/psuedoconfig
Host whatever.you.want.to.ssh.to
    HostName full.hostname.here
    Port xx
    IdentityFile /path/to/private/key
    User blah
$ ssh whatever.you.want.to.ssh.to

Bam, you're logged in as blah on full.hostname.here with no password intervention. You can even have entries that are the same but with a different identity/username, if you want. I haven't tried it, but I log in as me and don't mind sudo'ing around as I type 140+ wpm... I generally re-type commands/words if I make a typo, it's just faster. So typing "sudo su username -l" and my password? Not a biggie.

I also took it one step further and aliased these.

Code: [Select]
$ alias fullshell='ssh full.hostname.here '
So I can do things like

Code: [Select]
$ fullshell (instantly logged in)
$ fullshell uname -a (runs uname -a on full.hostname.here, returns it)

And other shorthand conventions which are super useful in mass:

Code: [Select]
for host in hostone hosttwo hostthree hostfour; do ssh $host -- <some remote command i want to run on everything>; done

Not to interrupt you guys or anything, but I found that tmux literally transformed my life with shell productivity. I can argue that I am more productive with this than I am with an IDE, but I won't. I can't remember the last time I used an IDE. :(
Sounds a lot like screen.

That's what I said. Then I discovered the pane feature. Juggling multiple shell sessions has never been the same. IT'S SO FUCKING SIMPLE AND EASY that it sometimes scares me.
