bloggy blog

I tossed together a silly WordPress plugin to special-case links into [[leuksman|my wiki pages]] such as my [[gimp mac helper]] tools, as well as to MediaWiki’s bug tracker (eg, bug 1) and SVN repository (r12345 was nice).

SVN anonymous checkout:

Only useful if you’re me at the moment, but maybe I’ll generalize it for fun.


For a long time I’ve found SSHKeychain an invaluable little app on my Macs, making remote logins with keys relatively painless.

When I upgraded to an Intel-based MacBook last month, I was saddened to find that there wasn’t a Universal release; the last PPC release didn’t run on Intel; and development seems to have stopped altogether. :(

The good news is that it’s open source, and further one of the last code checkins, early in 2006, had been to add Universal binary build support. So I went ahead and built the thing for my own use.

I did though find that it crashed intermittently when waking from sleep. After a little debugging I found the problem; some variables were initialized badly so if all your keychains were locked it would crash. Fun! Easy to fix, though.

I mailed the patch to the dormant developers mailing list and the author, hopefully it’ll get rolled in and other people will get to use it…
