Avoid stuck after ‘SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_ACCEPT received’

It is becoming pretty slow in SSH to a CentOS server.

Trying to print a verbose log:

$ ssh -vvvv my-host

debug2: set_newkeys: mode 1
debug1: rekey out after 134217728 blocks

The short-circuiting in bash

Bash script writing is a import approach to configure the linux system. Suppose we wish to add a user if not exists, the command may seems as follow:

if (! id -u $TARGET_USER > /dev/null 2>&1 ); then
    echo "creating user $TARGET_USER"
    # adduser $TARGET_USER

However, it is kind of too long. In this case short-circuiting is a alternative solution. (more…)

A simple workflow to create a clean python library based on Anaconda

The open-source Anaconda Distribution is an easy way to perform Python/R data science and machine learning on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. We could easily prepare an isolated and constant environment on anywhere based on a configure file.

Considering the various kind of strange errors due to the different versions of python and python libraries, this management tool makes our life much more comfortable in deploying and cooperating.
