I like to code and I do it a lot. I want to build software to save the planet. Passionate polyglot programmer, generalist with some specialties. Code reviewer, unit tester, driver of change, gets things done.

I make free Android apps like Programming Quiz, websites like bashoneliners.com, and other open source stuff. I wrote a book on Bazaar Version Control, and an article on shell tips & tricks for Linux Journal.

I blog, tweet (@janosgyerik), and post "pro tips" on CoderWall.

That error is common when the file is not really an encrypted file... Perhaps you need to unzip it first?

comment Using passwordless ssh on CentOS 6
Is it asking for password or passphrase. They are different things, caused by different problems in your configuration. Please clarify.

comment Specify consistent week boundaries using date
@terdon I hinted at that, but didn't explain how to handle it. I rewrote my answer that makes this more clear, with other improvements. Thanks for pointing out!
