Cooked Matambre for Memorial Day BBQ

Lisa got a new gas grill and I've been able to try a couple of new recipes on the grill; one being a Matambre roll.

I recommend Steven Raichlen's book, "How to Grill," which has a good recipe that's easy to follow.

Gas grilling with the amount of irradiated heat coming from the burner caused the meat to cook faster than expected so when we were finally ready to serve it was good but could have been a little moister.

SSH > read from remote host < > operation timed out

I have a MacBook Pro and I connect to a lot of Linux Enterprise machines throughout the day from the terminal window.

Unfortunately, I was getting hung SSH sessions after going to lunch where the session would have to quit on its own to give me the terminal prompt again.

As in a majority of my research forays I had to do some Google searches and found I needed to update my /etc/ssh_config and /etc/sshd_config files on my client and server machines.

Adding these lines to my ssh_config on my client side Mac in /etc/ssh_config >

Host *
ServerAliveInterval 240

AND on the server side in /etc/ssh/sshd_config, enabling >

ClientAliveInterval 240

seemed to work.

I made sure to restart my sshd server too with the command /etc/init.d/sshd restart.

Haven't had session timeouts in the last day...

One Simple Trick!

I really dislike the one simple trick ads that have been online for the last few years.

I really wish they would go away, but I can see their appeal. I've certainly been sucked in by wondering what the one simple trick would be for some of those remedies they are selling.
