Persistent Connection Services - Pricing

Here I'm interested in a use case of subscribers keeping a permanent connection open (24/7), but with negligible amount of messages. So I'm only concerned about price per connection, not price per message.

AWS API Gateway

$0.25 per million connection minutes

That's $1 per 4 million connection minutes.

Vim Terminal Mode - A short introduction

Vim has a Terminal Mode!

Since v8.1 (May 2018), Vim has shipped with a built-in terminal. See or type :help terminal for more info.

Why use this? Mainly because it saves you jumping to a separate terminal window. You can also use Vim commands to manipulate a shell session and easily transfer clipboard content between the terminal and files you're working on.

Generate a strong password in bash

A wrapper for pwgen. Put this in your ~/.bashrc to generate a long & strong password. You can append an optional message to remind yourself of the purpose if you can't immediately transfer it to a credentials repository.

Example usage:

$ hardpass
$ hardpass
$ hardpass new twitter password
### new twitter password
