“Top 3 Best Email Archiving Solutions” – how not write a review

I’ve just stumbled in an article about the “Top 3 Best Email Archiving Solutions”. I was curious, so I engaged, and read the article on the topic. What I found was a ridiculous conclusion, read it for yourself below.

Our favorite email archiver is Clean Email. This modern and easy to use inbox cleaner is a perfect companion for anyone who relies on email and wants to be more organized.

So basically the people of Clean Email concluded that Clean Email was the best solution to archive emails. It’s clearly a biased “review”.


Changing the background colour for on remote server via SSH

Once I managed to shutdown a server. At the end of the day I wanted to shutdown my notebook, so I switched to the workspace with my terminals open, and typed sudo halt.

I noticed pretty soon that my notebook didn’t halt, instead I lost the connection to a remote host, because I typed the command in the wrong terminal.

The solution is to make the terminal background colour somewhat different, eg. to make it reddish. The following command does the trick:

printf ‘\033]11;#9e0e2a\007’

You have several options.

1. Add it to the .profile on the remote host

2. Create an alias for ssh:

alias s=”printf ‘\033]11;#9e0e2a\007’; ssh”

You can have an alias to revert the bgcolor back to black:

alias black=”printf ‘\033]11;black\007′”
