comment Remove Mac OS X SSH Passphrase Pop-Up
Also, you probably want to do some reading under the Keychain Integration section here: dribin.org/dave/blog/archives/2007/11/28/ssh_agent_leopard

I assume you mean the OS X Keychain popup? Honestly, the thing is a godsend. But anyway… weird that some times you get it, some times you don't.

comment How to make Quick Look preview text files in UTF-8 by default?
Speaking of launchd, WatchPaths and QueueDirectories may do the job without my needing to tap fsevents myself.

comment Sometimes my .bash_history gets cleared. Why? How can I prevent that?
Hum, will try that. But this default value of 500 gave me a hint (it's the same for HISTSIZE): maybe when I start a shell that doesn't set these variables, the default of 500 kicks in and truncates my history. Makes sense?

Yeah, just me. No way I deleted the file. This happens quite regularly. I don't even think the file is ever deleted, just truncated.

I guess now I need a way to run that for every text file I create. fsevents and Folder Actions come to mind. Would be nice if TextMate had post-save hooks too.

In my opinion, the OS defaulting to MacRoman while the world has moved on is asinine.

comment How to ssh to an unreachable remote machine by tunneling through a server that everyone can reach?
-N is not -f. The process remains in foreground, you just don't get a shell. So, you don't have to fiddle with ps, just ^c. The advantage for me is exactly in not having a shell open. Otherwise I'm inclined to think it's just an idle remote shell and close it, and daaamn, just lost my tunnel.

Why are you omitting the -N option? Not that it's necessary, but do you not prefer it?
