Open-Source Projects

I'm actively involved in the open source community. I contribute to various projects, and make many of my own tools available under the GPL. Some of my recent projects include:

  • ruby-dev
    • Automate builds of fully-functional Ruby on Rails VMs for quick-start development.
  • tempgit
    • Integrate Git with TDD: mechanize temporary Git repositories during testing.

I think you have your forwarding backwards. Which host is your server running on?

comment Auto log in SSH using expect
@skerit That's probably because stdin is already used by your here-document. Try putting the commands in a script instead of a here-document, e.g. expect -f '# your commands here'.

comment Where can I limit the processor usage of a process that is copying files?
@bzero nice and ionice propagate to subshells, so you'd need to (io)nice the PPID or enclose your pipelines in (...) or {...;} if you want that to work.

If nmap reports "tcpwrapped," you might also take a look in /etc/hosts.allow or /etc/hosts.deny to see what service is actually being wrapped.
