I program web solutions with Ruby. I also do visual design and play the guitar. Still no luck with doing all three at the same time.

comment How do I get SSH access to a Mac, connected to another Mac by Ethernet, from a MacBookPro on the same network?
In the end I just settled for: ssh -t ian@Mini-Mac.local ssh ian@G5.local

No errors. If I ssh into the Mini-Mac from the MBP and then ssh into the G5 I can get access. It's a bit long winded but it works, if I can automate the forwarding I'm home and hosed!

I have private/public key pairs for github. I already tried it with the IPs, it didn't make any difference.

Hey thanks for the advice. I'm mostly interested in getting ssh access, so I've been trying the above without success. I get this error: ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

comment How to make children of a specific folder perform a different default action than the global one in OS X
Interesting. This looks like it might provide a solution. I'll have a bit of a dig around with this and report my findings. Thanks for the suggestion!

Yes. Despite OSX's GUI niceness I find myself at the zsh prompt for the majority of my work. There this kind of thing is extremely easy, and I have various custom scripts to obtain my desired functionality. Really what I was looking for was a way to give QSB some 'smarts' so that I didn't even have to think about about launching through it. It would see a requested folder was in my ~/Sites dir, go "that's a textmate project" and react accordingly with no further user input. As you correctly infer, anything else is less efficient than just doing it in terminal.

Hi, thanks for your input! MagicLaunch looks like a great little tool, but unfortunately I don't think it actually does what I need it to do. My objective is to specify different actions for children of a folder nested at a specific point in my file system. As far as I can see (even with custom rules etc) MagicLaunch deals with files and file extension types, not the folders themselves.
