Welcome to my corner of the web. Here are my musings and rumblings on  technology, linux, security and other fun stuff. Please do add your comment and share your view.

Current focus is on;

  1. Business Continuity
  2. Crypto Currency / Block Chains
  3. Malware / Ransomware
  4. Online tracking (ad network)
  5. Smartphone security
  6. Secure cloud data


Software Development, Linux Server Administration and Technology Consulting are some of the avenues  that I have explored in my 25+ years as an IT professional. This site is going to be a collection of the random bits of notes that are floating around. Hope this helps you.

This is an ad free and therefore a tracking free web site. Please drop me a line if you detect any tracking objects that might have inadvertently crept in.


OS X 10.13.2 High Sierra SSH Invalid Format

OS X 10.13.2 High Sierra has broken SSH again. $ ssh remote_server -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub $ Load key “xxx/.ssh/id_rsa.pub”: invalid format From 10.13.2 onwards the PRIVATE key is needed, earlier versions allowed the Public key “id_rsa.pub” to be used as the identity file. So change script or ~/.ssh/config accordingly.
