How to manually add RSS feeds to Feedly

Feedly recently removed its minibar option and it’s been a pain adding new feeds since. My work around is to use Google’s “RSS Subscription Extension” and manually add the feeds in. Install the extension. Browse to your site of choice. If the extension finds a valid RSS feed an icon will show up in your URL bar, click on it. Select the “manage” option from the dropdown and “add”.  Give it a name and use the URL below. “%s” in the end represents the feed URL and is automatically understood by the extension.

Windows 7 god mode

win-godmode-1 win-godmode-2

Today I stumbled onto Window’s secret “god mode”. Well, it’s basically a special folder containing all system settings.

Create a new folder and call it “GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}”. The folder icon will change to the control panel icon if it worked.  Open the folder and enjoy your new god like windows power 😀

Installing RHEL EPEL Repo on CentOS 5.x

Had to get collectd going on a CentOS 5.8 environment today. The EPEL repo was needed to get the packages.

Here’s how to add the EPEL repo to CentOS 5.x

cd /tmp
wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/x86_64/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm

rpm -Uvh epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm

Kill Unresponsive remote SSH Sessions

ssh-escape-cha_2013-07-31_19-11-17

I spend a lot of time working with ssh terminals over very slow connections. One common  issue that crops up often  is unresponsive terminals. Closing the terminal is what most of us would go with but then you would have to go through the login workflow again.  If you had to login to 3 servers then redoing that every time would be a pain.

Here’s a quick tip. The next time your ssh session becomes unresponsive, hit “ENTER” , followed the  “~” key and finally the  “.” key. ( ENTER , ~ , . ) . That will terminate the unresponsive session but still keep you within your main ssh session.

SSH supports a bunch of escape characters. It’s a less known feature but in my case proved handy. To see a list of all the supported escape characters run ” ENTER , ~ , ? “.

[root@server conf.d]# ~?
Supported escape sequences:
~. - terminate connection (and any multiplexed sessions)
~B - send a BREAK to the remote system
~C - open a command line
~R - Request rekey (SSH protocol 2 only)
~^Z - suspend ssh
~# - list forwarded connections
~& - background ssh (when waiting for connections to terminate)
~? - this message
~~ - send the escape character by typing it twice

(Note that escapes are only recognized immediately after newline.)

See Your Folks

See Your Folks

Let’s face it, Nowadays we’re always too busy to visit our folks. I’m guilty of the same crime 🙁

I stumbled on to “See You Folks” today. Put together by 4 guys under 24 hours with the goal to raise awareness about death.

Give it your parent’s location, age and average visits and you’ll know how many more times you’ll get to visit your parent before they are gone for good. You might be shocked by the answer.
