About Me

I am employed as a software engineer by a high performance media trader. There, I use Python, C++, Go, and AWS.

I like parsimonious code, with simple interfaces and excellent documentation. I'm not interested in enterprise, boiler-plate, or cookie-cutter nonsense. I oppose cruft and obfuscation. My favourite languages are C, Go and Python. I wish I was better at Haskell.

comment Prevent Nail from attaching my message as a .bin file?
I've long since moved on from the Outlook environment, but imagined it would be something like this given that MS is involved. Thanks.

comment Adding an .exe to default path without adding the directory
@paradroid: Thanks, but it's standard terminal behaviour to remain attached to the parent unless asked. The user should do start git rather than have it done for them. The batch script would act better if it execd into the requested process but this isn't possible on Windows: serverfault.com/questions/315077/…. I could prepend call but it would be pedantic and mostly pointless.

This only works when invoking from the Run As dialog, it didn't work from the command prompt.

This doesn't work. By default (I'm dragging git.exe), "git - Shortcut", renaming this to combinations of "git.exe", "git", "git.cmd" etc. has no effect. It won't acknowledge the shortcut.

comment why is Linux Mint/Ubuntu killing my CPUs?
It'll be a driver or VM software issue. Try installing it natively with a dual boot to get fully immersed into Linux.

comment Can I make SSH fail when a port forwarding fails?
@IgnacioVazquez-Abrams: Just the forwarding.

comment Can I make SSH fail when a port forwarding fails?
The case I'm trying to avoid is that a port forward already exists, and a warning is given. I think this script will treat an existing binding to the port as success, rather than failure.

Unfortunately I have OpenSSH 4. Can you tell me when this feature was added?
