Sequel Pro is one of the most popular database tools for the Mac. With the release of MacOS Sierra, I had a few issues connecting to my saved databases that used the SSH tunnel method of connecting. The error I kept getting was:
debug1: Offering RSA public key: /Users/username/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
debug1: Server accepts key: pkalg ssh-rsa blen 535
debug1: read_passphrase: can't open /dev/tty: Device not configured
debug1: permanently_drop_suid: 501
The fix involved two steps. The first is to be sure your
id_rsa file has the proper permissions.
chmod 600 id_rsa
Then, in your Sequel Pro connection change the key file from
id_rsa.pub to the none pub version,

I’m logging this so in 10 years I’ll be able to use this example for my kids. I really like the lines in the video as a visual representation for what to look for.
Twenty Seventeen will focus on providing a seamless initial theme setup so anyone can set up a website for themselves or their business with minimal hassle.
I’ve been a fan of both twenty-fifteen and twenty-sixteen and I like the direction of adding video headers, but I’d really to see them create a super minimal theme one year without a focus on big bold images. The hunt for post images is such a huge time sink.
One thing that I’ve always found annoying on the Mac is that by default it’s not possible to “tab” between the different buttons in a dialog window.
This is possible but it requires finding this bizarre setting in the keyboard settings. To get this go to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts, then click the All Controls radio button.
I’ve seen this image shared by many of my friends on social media and it’s such a great way of explaining passing by value vs by reference.

I did it. I bought a new iPad Pro, pencil, and keyboard and it arrived today. This is my first impressions after using it for a few hours.
I know you are probably thinking, you’ve only owned it for a few hours how can you possibly review something in that short amount of time? You would be right but my theory is if I wait to write about it later then I will not be able to remember my first impressions. So it’s best to write about it now before I sleep.
