Minecraft - Versioning your saves

This is a tutorial show how to version your saves using Git.

Q: Why would anyone go through this process?
A: Because if you do, you can undo an otherwise un-undoable action, such as swimming in a pit of lava and accidentally dropping your Notch armpit forged special edition diamond pickaxe and your 35 stacks of cobblestone.

Step by step tutorial

Download and install the appropriate version of Git

Set the Mac OS X SOCKS proxy on the command line

a.k.a. what to do when your ISP starts blocking sites :(

Set the SOCKS proxy to local SSH tunnel

networksetup -setsocksfirewallproxy "Ethernet" localhost 8080

Setup Mac OS X

Edit: I've done the same process every couple years since 2013 (Mountain Lion, Mavericks and High Sierra).

I just replaced the hard drive of my mbp and decided to do a clean install of Mountain Lion (10.8.5) since I was still using Snow Leopard (10.6.8).

I kinda regret for not using Boxen to automate the process, but TBH I have this laptop for almost 3yrs and this is the first

Forward your clipboard via SSH reverse tunnels
View ssh-forward-clipboard.md

Exposing your clipboard over SSH

I frequently administer remote servers over SSH, and need to copy data to my clipboard. If the text I want to copy all fits on one screen, then I simply select it with my mouse and press CMD-C, which asks relies on m y terminal emulator (xterm2) to throw it to the clipboard.

This isn't practical for larger texts, like when I want to copy the whole contents of a file.

If I had been editing large-file.txt locally, I could easily copy its contents by using the pbcopy command:

Set up a new Node.js project with Express >4.0: a newb's guide
View node-and-express.md

And my article is deprecated!

As of just writing this, Express 4.0 was released and there are points in there that no longer matter. So, this remains as a great >4.0 article.

Node.js is the red-hot new hotness! You can't throw a stick on the internet without hitting someone talking about Node. But why? For one, it's built on JavaScript which is completely ubiquitous. So, why not build a development stack and server on JavaScript? I would argue that the installation is almost painless while the terseness of the language is not.

While you can create apps 100% from Node.js, the Express framework is a great tool that helps you solve many standard problems without having to write boilerplate code.

Node.js is here and it's not going anywhere anytime soon. So if you are new to Node.js, Express, and even JavaScript in general, this is a great newb's step-by-step guide to get started.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
