This video is from our ExoSocial event at Nanshan Ski Village just outside Beijing today. It shows what the few people that went to the top were up to (most people stayed on the green slopes). Fun to see programmers, PMs, and sysadms basking in the snow.

Link 2 Dec Wrap-up of Django sprint at Exoweb offices»

On occasion of the second world-wide Django sprint we got together 12 people to sprint at Exoweb’s office yesterday.

The good:

Merlin Mann has a good interview with Jonathan where he discusses what the process was like.

His unique background makes for some unique songs, very geeky songs, like code monkey and lately Still Alive, the…

Text 27 Oct Even simpler way to ssh through a firewall

In his article Jacky explained how to easily drill holes through to ports on machines behind a firewall. What I normally want is to have ssh access to machines behind firewalls, allowing me to do scp, and easily ssh in without a stupid stop-over on the firewall machine.

I came across this solution that does exactly that. After the super-simple set-up I’m able to do:


  % ssh rexobox
  % rcp rexobox:some-file .

Text 9 Oct The day the podcasts died

Richard noticed that Feedburner has been blocked in China. This is terrible news as a lot of blogs and podcasts are using feedburner! No wonder half my podcasts suddenly stopped working. Let me know if you find a work-around (besides using Tor for everything).
