It’s comforting to know that the people we elect to rule us at least know what they’re doing… Oh… wait…
git and branches
Last week, for the first time, I think I groked branches. The headline mentions git branches, and if they are different from other VCS’ branches, then last week I think I groked git branches
I’ve known about branching for quite a while, but never gotten past anything other than a rudimentary understanding.
I think I understood how mercurial does it (simply clone the repository, name the root directory of that clone to whatever you want to call that branch, and presto. (And yes, I am aware that mercurial has a branch command as well, so my understanding on that point is probably incorrect).
Either way, what finally gave me an “aha”-moment was this blogpost.
- Transparent multi-hop SSH — This is pretty frakkin cool, using your ~/.ssh/config file and the ProxyCommand you can simplify connecting to a remote host which you’d have to reach by connecting through other hosts. Nice!
- And while on the subject of SSH: /bin/false is NOT security
- Yet another blog post which makes me realize that I have a lot more to learn about Vim
- Butthurt much, RIAA?
- This was a pretty cool experiment
No but seriously, frakking do it. Automation ftw.
