Recently I help maintain some server, sometime I tend to move around. So I decide to make my phone to be useful.
Android actually have a couple of app that is useful to remotely access a machine. Some of them is free.
For connecting to SSH, I found that connectbot
works extremely well. It only does ssh and telnet, and thats about it. It is pretty straight forward to use. For accessing windows server, I use 2x client
. Which again another another straight forward RDP client. Both connectbox and 2x client is free, and that is awesome.
The only issue on using android phone to access a server remotely is. I have a desire hd. While the screen is pretty large for a phone, typing command via ssh or, navigate around a windows server via RDP can be still a pain. It is still smaller that most desktop screen. And I don’t have a full size keyboard on the phone. Which is another pain especially I access linux server most of the time.
So it can be a pain to use at time. But for quick fix or checking on server. This work pretty well.
I attached some links for the app below
So not too long ago I have posted on twitter
This spin to a few other way to do grep.
A few have suggested on IRC and facebook, the i parameter is to make keyword not case sensitive.
grep -iR keyword directory
Another suggestion on IRC.
grep -iR –exclude=file-to-ignore keyword directory
Another tweet i have receive is,
Then the last one I discovered on google is ack-grep
ack-grep keyword directory
and again, -i make case insensitive search.
ack-grep -i keyword directory
ack-grep output is nicer, and automatically ignore binary. It is slightly different than grep. But both get the job done., to me anyway
