Heh, the Lenny installer lists the keymap “US american” instead of “US English”… is that a joke on the Miss Teen USA flop?

Prevent SSH timeouts: disable keepalive

I never had the problem at home but on many other networks an idle connection would drop after a couple of minutes. I added this to ~/.ssh/config several hours ago and haven’t lost a connection since:

TCPKeepAlive no
ServerAliveInterval 20
ServerAliveCountMax 10

It’s counter-intuitive but it works for me. The usual disclaimers apply.
