2 steps to ssh without passwords

Situation: You are on machine A, and you want to log in machine B without having to enter your password each time.

On machine A:
type: ssh-keygen -t rsa

then press enter for default settings, and make sure you don't enter any paraphrase.

Now, you need to send your public key to machine B.

type: cat .ssh/ | ssh b@B 'cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys'

That's it !

Chrome dev tools - secret weapon?

When I started working back in 2010, we used to support IE7. I still remember how much of a paint it was to debug javascript code. With IE8/IE9 debuggers, what I learned is patience, rather than figuring out how to fix all those weird bugs that *always show up *only in IE. The debuggers were so slow. Also back then, firebug was the norm. Chrome dev tools was relatively new and most people I knew did not use it. I liked Chrome so I sticked with it. Now, it's a tool that I use almost every day. In fact, I try to spend some time and follow what's new with the dev tools. I also spend some time experimenting with soon to be features/apis on Chrome Canary. This year, well last year... (2016), I've been pretty busy and haven't had much time to look at the new features. But today, I spent a few hours catching up on the last Google I/O and watch what's new with the dev tools. I wanted to share this link and give back some love to the chrome dev tools by writing this post.
