Help Needed  - 
 
I have attempted to find an answer for this for a week now, but I am not coming up with anything.  I am hoping someone else has the answer.

I use scp to copy files all the time from server to server to workstation to workstation.  It is a great tool!  Recently there was a change in our infrastructure that has me stumped when using this command.  The remote server has a different port number then port 22.  This is not an issue for most of what I have to do and that is download a file from the remote server. 

scp -P 1234 user@host:/path/filename/destination

That works great!  But here is the part that does not seem to be working for me, if I need to push a file to that server. 

This one fails because the port is associated with the source file/host

scp -P 1234 sourcefile user@host:/home/user

This one seems to ignore the port flag and logs in with port 22

scp sourcefile scp -P 1234 sourcefile user@host:/home/user

I have resorted to using sftp but that is messing up my scripts, as it does not work the same way and I end up having to do things manually. 

If anyone has figured this out or knows of a way I would appreciate the feedback!

You could educate them about iptables (for restricting source addresses), ssh public key infrastructure (to require public key authentication for sufficient security, protect private keys with passwords and still be able to autonomate), and port knocking (scripting iptables modifications after packets sent to secret ports to replace port randomness with automation).

My son walked into the room:

Spongebob square pants is not right, it should be spongebob rectangle pants, because his pants are not square, they are a rectangle.

You cannot argue the logic :)

I don't claim to be an expert but could it refer to the usage of Square as "unhip, uncool"?

More like Anti-Freedom fries, the evil Mr. Potato Head is sending out his potato minions to steal the life force from everyone that eats them. Eventually he will be so powerful that he will take over the world and damn us to a world of pure horror! A world run by the potato conglomerate!

Well there is a first for everything.  I just tossed the Elementary OS DVD in the trash.  Things just did not work like I expect it should.  I cannot even say I would be able to recommend it to anyone.  Now to play with Ubuntu 15.04 and Kubuntu 15.04. 

I think at this point Ubuntu and Kubuntu are going to start parting ways and will truly be two separate entities.  We live in exciting times!

Tonight was an awesome night.  I picked up my son from school and found out he had another fantastic day!  Hearing that really does make me feel better!  He has been a little socially awkward and not expressing his feelings positively.  So on the way home we went to the local farm market that he has been asking to go to when it opens, today happened to be opening day.  They treat +Xavier Brown like family there, and he loves it.  He had it in his mind for the past 3 months to ask them for a pumpkin pie when they opened up.  It is not the best pumpkin pie, but it is what he wanted and it is what he did.  So like a little gentleman he thanks the owner and gets his cookies and we head out.  He got the sugar cookies even though I wanted the jelly thumb print ones.  But it was his choice and my promise. 

On the way home he is telling me about #starwars and asking me all kinds of questions about it.  He goes on about lightsavers (you know we all called them that when we were kids), so I correct him and explain it is a light saber because a saber is a type of sword.  That made sense to him so a lightzaber it is...  Kids are awesome :)  Then we move on to Darth Vader and how he is Lukes father and I explain the whole 6 movies in 4 sentences in reference to the father and son relationship.  The important part was at the end when Darth Vader saved his son Luke from the emperor because he was the dad and that is what Dads should do.  The smile he gave me as he said "You would save me if I was going to get hurt, right Daddy?"  Melted my heart.  I am still smiling :)  I told him I would do everything in my power to always be there for him. 

Since he did great in school I like to let him know I appreciate it, so I let him play a little minecraft.  We worked on the underground fort he wanted to build together.  I do not think he has the same level of dedication when it comes to long periods of monotonous placing of bricks, either that or I am just a little off in the head!  He started wandering off and making some kind of redstone contraption that only he knows what it may or may not do. 

So after 45 min we stopped and headed upstairs.  I grabbed a water and turned on netflix.  I found out that season 3 of rescue bots was released!  I swear Xavier was about to atomize with how happy he was.  So I told him to get his pajamas on and then we started to watch some of the episodes.  We discussed the shows over diner and we theorized on how things will turn out and it was just too awesome! 

So he gets ready for bed and it is time for a story.  He keeps asking me questions about cybertron and how the transformers learned to transform.  He was distracted enough that he could not find a book for us to read.  So I asked him if he wanted me to just tell him the story of how the Transformers came to earth.  He excitedly said yes!  He asked questions and guessed answers and brought up things I told him long enough ago that I even forgot we talked about. 

When I tucked him in and wished him his good nights he was smiling.  This is the parts of #fatherhood I will remember and cherish forever.  The parts I need to hold onto when I want to strangle him for being a strong willed argumentative 6 year old. (yes I know it will be an asset when he is older, but darn it just listen to me!!)  It shows me that he is doing well.  He is on the right path and he will turn out ok.  The foundation is there, we just need to guide and strengthen it and he will turn out great! 

I love my son.  Not everything in my life is how I want it, and I could wish I made different decisions.  The logic fails me when any of the decisions I wish I could change would mean that he would have never been there.  I need to accept the life I have and change the parts that I can.  The one part I can say with 100% certainty is that I will always be a part of my son's life and he will always be a part of mine, and I will always do everything in my power to be there for him.  For it is my choice and it is my promise :)

VICTORY IS MINE!  I love peppermint mocha creamer.  Sure powedered creamer is not a coffee persons usually thing, I get that.  But when you have thieves that steal out of the fridge in the office you tend not to store things in there.  I usually buy the stores out in the local area during the winter seasons.  Lately they there has been fewer and fewer stores that sell it.  I mean when you put it on the shelf and someone buys all of your stock every time, why would you not keep some on hand?  I visit the coffee area of every store that has a coffee area just because I like to see what they have and smell the awesomeness.  I was in target today and saw these sitting on the shelf.  I get the oddest looks when I am there giggling to myself grabbing each container saying mine mine mine ALL MINE!!  At least now I have a little longer to drink coffee with my favorite creamer, until I have to find a sub par alternate :)

What VNC client do you use and why? 

I am trying to find a good robust one but they all seem to be sub par compared to the windows variants. I figure I am looking in the wrong place!

I have tried the remmina, the low quality mode did work nicer then the others I used on the lower speed connections.  Though it is on par with vinagre.  I will keep testing :)

I wish we could use NX I use that often on my systems, but it is not my choice what desktop sharing system we use.  VNC was the choice, VNC is what we are using, and we use VNC because we have always used VNC... 

Thank you all for your answers!

I spent about 10 min on the car ride to school explaining to my son what May the 4th was, how it sounds like may the Force, and so it is Star Wars day.  I am not totally sure he got it, but when he got to school he started telling everyone May the 4th be with you. 

It would have been even more awesome if everyone did not look so confused...

I got my clip, along with 3 cups of coffee.  I also got a clip in each box of 120 cup fog chaser I have purchased.  I have handed 3 of the clips out to friends.  I recommend this coffee to everyone that has a k-cup machine.  The price is great and the coffee is fantastic.  I like +Rogers Family Coffee they seem to love what they do and it shows.

Kubuntu 15.04 downloaded and installed!  I look forward to giving it a run! 

And as usual I will leave my iso feeding the torrent until my provider kills it!

Viva La Kubuntu!

Searching for Zen in life, a little love couldn't hurt either.
Introduction
I am a being of logic and poetry, its hard to explain myself since I need to relearn who I am and make changes in life to compliment that.  

I am interested in technology, I love GNU/Linux.  I want to help people, it is one of the few things in life that makes me feel good.  If you have any questions feel free to ask!

I used to wish and dream to find a wife and get married and have kids.  This has changed since I am getting older, and have a kid, but I still wish to find someone that complements me and whom I can fall deeply and madly in love with.  I want to get married one day, it is something on my list of things to do before I die.  I just do not think I could have another child, even though my son means the world to me! 

I hope to be a good Dad for my Son, and be someone he looks up to and will always be there for him.  I also hope to make someone happy one day, and to be happy myself.  Its been a long time.

*Circling*

I generally will only circle someone that I find is interesting, most of the people in my circles have circled me first and I took effort to read up on them.  If I do not circle you back, it is probably due to you not having enough interesting data on your page.
