Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

2014 Links & Tips

I love my Pebble! Agree 100% with this guy.  Nerdwise, today I learned how to quickly control Time Machine from the command line.  This is useful because TM and Aperture share a physical disk (and it's slow enough already without having to multitask).

Finally, this command allows a time-stamped status ping to run from my terminal widget, to check that my machines are healthy and on-network:

ping -i 20 192.168.xx.xx | while read line; do echo `date` - $line; done
