Script to sync a local directory to external hard drive
View sync_me
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# This will sync LOCAL_DIR directory to XTAL_DIR (which is my xtal hard drive)
# It's meant to run on frequent polling cron job so that it syncs "immediately"
# when the xtal is plugged in. It will do nothing if the xtal drive is not
# plugged in.
# After a successful sync, it will change the crontab so it is not sync'd again
# for 24 hours. This script assumes you don't need more frequent backing up than
# that because I use it for my projects directory where everything important is

Transitioning your pem/key on an EC2 instance
View gist:1b7ec4d3871b343d353d

Note: This is mainly useful for instances you are essentially locked out of in the case where you don't want to create a new instance.

  1. Launch a micro instance with your new key (we'll call this the "key transitioning instance"). This instance will need to be in the same availability zone ("us-east-1b", for example) as the instances you are locked out of.
  2. Make sure you can ssh in
  3. Select the instance you are locked out of and make note of the attached EBS volume ID which will look something like vol-6a844e25 and the Root Device which will look something like /dev/sda1.
  4. Stop the EC2 instance you are locked out of
  5. Go to that instance's Root Device EBS volume and detach it
  6. Re-attach the EBS volume to the key transitioning instance
  7. On the key transitioning instance, run sudo fdisk -l
  8. Note the "Device" column output from this command that is similar to the "Attachment information" which is displayed when you select the EBS volume (we'll use /dev/xvdf1 as an example). That will be yo
