Weekly review: Week ending September 13, 2013

Blog posts

Other things I learned

  • I still have to get the hang of using a steel to start a fire (or using a lighter, even!), but it’s fun. =)
  • Sometimes I need to storyboard a presentation or figure out how to organize information on a poster. This is where working on paper really shines. Instead of using pre-printed templates, I use lots and lots of index cards. (Or Post-It notes, but index cards are cheaper and handier.) Index cards are great because you can move them around easily, so you can add, remove, or swap out cards right away.
  • How to keep ssh agents through sudo: Defaults env_keep+=SSH_AUTH_SOCKLink
