Whether someone is bored or not, you always need to be able to answer two questions regarding each person on your team:

Where are they going?
What are you currently doing to get them there?

This one is for all you security conscious people who also use Samsung Android phones.
Looks like a custom ROM won't save you either as the backdoor is in the modem firmware.

haha, although this post was anonymous, I'm pretty sure I know that admin.
A humorous take on the plight of a sysadmin in today's world of DevOps.

Anyone know how I can take a tunneled SSH command

eg
`ssh -A -t host1 ssh -A -t host2`

and instead make it a modifier in .ssh/config file so I could just type something like

`ssh tunnel-host2`

instead of the whole ssh connection string
I want the `tunnel-` to be generic so I don't have to have two connections for each of my servers. It should instead modify the other host rules in .ssh/config

It would really helpful when I'm not on the LAN

Thanks for the tip. An alias is exactly the conclusion I came up with last night. I was also able to make aliases for different hosts depending on where I am remoting into.

eg
alias sshw='ssh -A -t worktunnel ssh -A -t'
alias sshh='ssh -A -t hometunnel ssh -A -t'

Then I manage the "tunnel"s in ssh_config

I rented a roto tiller for my yard and went to City Rentals instead of Home Depot. City Rentals had fewer choices for what to rent (2 sizes while Home Depot had 4 different sizes) but their "Small" tiller was the same size as Home Depot's Large for a cheaper price. Not only were they helpful in showing me how to use the tiller but they also loaded and unloaded the tiller from my truck. To top it all off I rented the tiller for 4 hours $15/hr but they only charged me for 2 hours. They may not have as many consumer grade tools to rent but getting an industrial tool for the same price as a Home Depot rental is a much better deal. Not to mention the better customer service and friendly staff.

The window for the plumber to come was 1-3. I received a call around 2 saying he would be late. He came at 3:30 and began fixing my issues. He fixed the leaky sink and went to install my faucet but didn't have a hose adapter he needed. He went to the store, bought it and installed the sink. The 3rd job was to install a hot water heater vent but he didn't have the tools he needed so he'd have to come back the next day. He accidentally left his tools and notebook at my house so I had to put it outside before leaving for work so he could come by and pick it up. He was supposed to come back at 5:30 PM but I he didn't show up and I didn't get a call. At 5:45 I called the service and they said he was on his way. A little after 6 he came, installed the vent, and the jobs were done. The price was about what I expected but everything just took longer than it should have. I trust the work but the lack of communication, preparedness, and organization would make me look elsewhere next time I need something fixed.
