Getting password less login with SSH to work when all hope is lost.

Had access to two servers. On one I could login without password, on the second I could not.
No root access, not that it mattered in this case.

Googled a lot, and everybody told me to

chmod 700 .ssh
chmod 600 .ssh/authorized_keys

and it should work, still the computer said NO …

There was one more thing (!)

SELINUX

To really find out about SELINUX (ask Google)

Creating Mobile Apps

With all the buzz about Apple iPads it is almost impossible not to get involved in writing apps.

Having followed courses on the Immediate Edge have surely helped on the steep learning curve.

Here are two projects that I am currently working on.

The next project will be a game which I hope will not be too complicated to get made.
