Pushing successful SSH logins to PushBullet 0

Pushing successful SSH logins to PushBullet

On Friday I ran across Sandrino Di Mattia’s post “Posting successful SSH logins to Slack” which was very easy and a very nifty idea. Already most of my notifications from various systems (Datadog, Tutum, Twitter, etc) are gathered into a notification channel on Slack, so I jumped on the chance to try out this script. It worked great, but I realized there was one major issue: my slack notifications are...

A collection of useful/nifty/cool ST2 Plugins

Setting up a new GitHub repo in TortoiseGit

By now you’ve come around to accept that Git Is The Answer. You are a smart cookie and you’ve realized that GitHub Is The Answer (to Git). So you start creating GitHub repos for anything and everything (like me). It’s easy to create a new Git repo under Linux because GitHub tells you how. It’s also super easy to do so on Mac because you’ve got the GitHub client for...
