Two things today: a recommendation and a question.
- I recently discovered ClusterSSH. This enables you to set up “sets” (clusters) of hosts, log into them all at once, and then whatever you type in the main cssh window will be replicated in all the hosts. The xterms are all shown so you can check what’s going on; and you can also select any host xterm to make changes just on that host. Works best if you have ssh key logon set up, for obvious reasons. Very useful! See their FAQ for more information.
- I keep a fair amount of my system notes on a wiki (MediaWiki). I could really do with backing this up occasionally into an offline-accessible form & dumping it somewhere where I can get at it if, say, the webserver is out of action. PDF or HTML would both do fine. Even text (with some sort of formatting) would do. Unfortunately, whilst there is a utility in MediaWiki to dump a static copy of the wiki to HTML, it doesn’t seem to work with multiple wikis on the same installation, which is what I have. Does anyone out there have any other suggestions? I feel sure that this can’t be a “roll your own” problem, but a scan of the utilities referred to MediaWiki2HTML doesn’t seem to be complete yet, and Terodump seems to be wikipedia-specific.
