Yo lunchbox, hurry it up.

Tuesday, 9 September 2008

Today I received two kittens. They rock.

Somebody else who rocks? Martin F. Krafft.

Martin rocks because of this gem I came across today managing ~/.ssh/known_hosts via git.

The idea is that instead of having a single file known_hosts you have a known_hosts.d/ directory containing multiple entries that are concatenated together.

So neat. So obvious. So nice. Rock award.

Kitten express? How exactly were they delivered!?
Care to do a short write-up on converting to known.hosts.d perhaps in a quick article on D-A?

They were delivered by car, all the way from Newcastle!

As to a writeup that seems like it would be a hard one to explain - but I can point you at a script to splitup an existing file if you like?

Are you the lunchbox? One of them certainly seems to be eyeing you for some grub! Please don't say their names are boo and hamm!

I don't think they're going to eat me, but I guess as provider-of-food I'm the lunchman!

As for names, they're a little more interesting :)

Managing known-hosts with git is neat, but even neater is http://monkeysphere.info
