data.gg Publicity

My website data.gg recently had some local publicity and I appeared on local BBC TV and BBC Radio. These links won’t work forever so if you’re from the future you’ll have to take my word for it 🙂

Login via SSH Key

This is a follow on to my previous post ‘Simple Security on a Linux VPS’ in which I said I would post about how to setup SSH key access on a server. SSH key access works by adding your local machines identify to a file on the server called authorized_keys. Once your key is in the file, you can login as that server user using your local key. Previously, I would SSH onto the server and paste my local SSH key into authorized_keys using nano but I’ve since found a much quicker way to do it by running this command.
