    • Rewrite a Java webapp from servlets and JSP to DropWizard microservice and HTML/JS. Biggest challenge was handling the dependency graph of the finished app, figuring out what had to be excluded in order to have our (old) app run on DW.
    • Emacs-lisp to generate a Bitbucket URI corresponding to the repo, file and line number I'm currently looking at (the git-link package didn't work for me).

    They're lucky to have him. A pity he didn't go back to Spurs, though.

    I didn't know about Endlessh, thanks. Nice.

    I didn't know about Endlessh, thanks.

    The purpose is to put your real SSH server on another port and then let the script kiddies get stuck in this tarpit instead of bothering a real server.

    Nice.

    Hi Tony, thanks for the comment. I also run fail2ban and these days prefer ed25519 keys over the default rsa-sha2-512. It's even a shorter line to copy and past over IM ;-) Cheers for mentioning...

    Cheers for mentioning ssh-audit, I'll have a look.

    Thanks for the feedback. I tried to keep the video simple, but perhaps I should've covered more.

    For the record, I too run sshd on a non-standard port, and turn off root login (that should be the default IMO).

    You're welcome. It seems to me most folks use command-log-mode, so this interaction-log-mode is a well hidden gem.

    Ever considered using Emacs instead of tmux? Neither did I - before tmux starting crashing on me. In this video, I show you how I've replaced tmux with Emacs:

    • named, dedicated shell buffers for specific apps with shell-mode
    • running rich TUI apps like top and vim inside Emacs using vterm
    • having multiple vterm buffers with multi-vterm

    Many people have asked me about what mode I use for showing Emacs shortcuts and the answer is: interaction-log-mode. I can never remember the name, so I created a wee screencast

    Thanks for the list, I haven't heard nor tried out even half of them :-) On my laptop, I prefer one that includes lots of info, like battery. Performance is an issue, though. The performance monitor shouldn't be a top (no pun intended) contender in its own list of the most resource hungry processes on your system.

    Download it (one file) and run ./bashtop. Enjoy its features and good looks. Then let it sink in that this is all written in 3,500 lines of bash.

    This is huge. Having Fedora preinstalled is great for people wanting to run other distros too. If it works on Fedora, you know you can get it running on Slackware. Happy to see there are different models to choose from as well.

    Kudos to everyone who've worked hard to make this happen.
