If you (“you” being a website, i.e. a website owner) tell me to disable my adblocker in order to view your content, I will leave. And that’s a problem for you, not me.

You might think to yourself “But Athoxx, if you don’t wanna watch my ads, I won’t make money off of you, so by loosing your traffic I’m not loosing anything.”

You’re wrong.

Actually, by leaving your site (and adding it to my list of banned websites,) I have drawn the conclusion that your content isn’t worth the relatively low amount of pain that ads provide. And you’re actually the one who devalued your content to the level of a few tenths of a cent, which is what an ad view might yield.

YouTube (Google) understands this. They could have made YouTube useless for people with adblockers a long time ago, but they didn’t, and they wont. They’ve realized that such an action would kill the platform extremely quickly.

Bash script for uploading SSH keys to a server. If the key doesn’t have a password, it means passwordless login. Sweet.

# Upload SSH keys to server
function upload_ssh_keys () {
  if [ "$1" != "" ]
  then
    host=$1
    port=`echo -n $host | cut -d: -f 2`
    host=`echo -n $host | cut -d: -f 1`

    echo "Using $host as host"
    echo "Using $port as port"

    port_text=""
    if [ "$port" != "$host" ]
    then
      port_text=" -p $port"
    fi


    cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh $port_text $host "mkdir -p .ssh; touch .ssh/authorized_keys; cat - >> .ssh/authorized_keys; chmod 700 .ssh; chmod 600 .ssh/authorized_keys"
    echo "Key(s) uploaded to $host $port_text"
  else
    echo "'$host' is no valid host. Try upload_ssh_keys user@hostname or upload_ssh_keys user@hostname:port"
  fi
}

Pair this with proper entries in `.ssh/config` and it’ll be even easier, like so:

Host [whatever-you-want-the-alias-to-be]
    User [USERNAME]
    Hostname [SERVER IP/HOSTNAME]

At bash, merely login like so:

$ ssh SERVERNAME

If you want the WordPress theme that this site runs on, you can have it. I release it under CC0 – No copyright. Well, my code at least. There are plenty of components (/_assets/ folder) that are under other licenses, but I’m sure you can figure it out.

Be warned though – it’s not a theme filled with settings pages or whatnot. If you want to run it on your site, you’re gonna have to set up a dev environment, compile the assets and customize to your own liking. In other words: If you have no idea what I just said, this theme isn’t for you.
