Extreme Blue

Just realised I haven't updated this in yonks!

Brief news update: Got a first in my exams. I'm working in IBM for the summer. Got a job in their Mulhuddart campus under the Extreme Blue program. Can't say much about what I'm up to but it is very interesting and I'm having a great time.

Server certificate verification error: unable to get local issuer certificate

Kept getting the error "Server certificate verification error: unable to get local issuer certificate" from OpenSSL.

Bit of googling revealed that I was missing the root CA certificates.

Solution?

fink install ca-roots
c_rehash /sw/etc/ssl/certs

Black and White Vim Outside Screen

I was puzzling today as to why vim was in black and white outside screen while in colour inside screen.

Posing the question to tcd netsoc's guru, eoinmcl, revealed this tip:

export TERM=xterm-color

Pretty obvious really when you think about it I suppose but it just didn't occur to me!

Of course, this command can be added to your .bashrc so that you don't have to keep typing it.
