A hairy situation

Penny has an 1100 gallon per hour bilge pump that slowed down to a dribble when it should have pushed out a river. This could be a big problem if the boat were ever to take on water!

I took it apart and found a TON of hair inside! I am impressed that it continued to work even a little. Pulled the hair out, reconnected everything, and it is happily pumping away at full power again.

The pump is an Attwood Sahara S1100 GPH and I highly recommend it.

Quickly list all hosts in your ssh config

I try to be a good citizen and create unique ssh keys for each service I ssh into. I setup all sorts of fun config items and one of my favorites is host aliases. I have accumulated dozens of hosts in my config file and remembering the names of each can be problematic. I tend to open the config file a couple times a day to find a host. This morning I whipped up a quick command that will dump a list of all my hosts into the terminal with one command. No more opening the config file with an editor and scrolling through it. Hopefully this will be something you can enjoy also!

The command is:

grep -w -i "Host" ~/.ssh/config | sed 's/Host//'

It uses grep to search through the ssh config file and sed to clean up the output.

But wait! That is a lot to type and this was supposed to make life easier. Add this as a shell alias and simply type sshhosts to get the list!

alias sshhosts="grep -w -i "Host" ~/.ssh/config | sed 's/Host//'"

Dreamin of an enjoyable summer of sailing with these peeps!

Mute and unmute your mic quickly with this Alfred Workflow

I am on a lot of calls for work every day and juggle several different call applications. Finding the apps mute/unmute button quickly gets tedious. On some apps the UI is so poorly designed as to make toggling the mic nearly unusable.

Enter Alfred! Alfred is an amazing productivity app. Alfred let you run custom commands and hotkeys in custom Workflows.

I created a Workflow that, once installed, allows you to mute and unmute your mic with the command-M hotkey.

To install simply download the Workflow and double click it to load it into Alfred.

The Workflow is on Github! If you have ideas for improvements create a fork and send them to me: https://github.com/blobaugh/Mic-PTT-Alfred-Workflow
