Show notes for TMO To Go: Mac Geek Gab For October 25th, 2005
Direct Links: MP3 Version.
To say that this show is chock full of info is an understatement! John and Dave continue their tour through the terminal, discussing shells, public key encryption and various other nuances. The meat is in the tips this time, though, with great info about authenticating as a priviledged user, setting up automatic login via SSH, and an awesome audio comment detailing how to use regular expressions! John also takes us on a trip through his AppleCare experience, which is not to be missed!
