I'm a husband to my beautiful wife, father to our children, Computer Science graduate from University of Central Arkansas. I love my wife, our children, computers, playing guitar (especially singing/playing for my wife and/or kids), bicycling (including taking my kids for rides in my bike trailer), woodworking, airbrushing, digital and traditional artistry, playing games with my family (traditional and digital), my poor Chevette that I had to sell, throwing knives, firearms, knot tying, rope making, whip making, and really just learning new stuff in general. If I don't know about it I probably want to learn about it, if only so I can make informed decisions about it.

My three favorite programming languages are Python, Lisp, and Assembly (though I'm not sure about the order of those last two languages...), and I currently develop in .NET languages, especially VB.

I think the CANSPAM act is one of the dumbest pieces of legislation in the history of the universe

Code I can write/read (where 1 is just barely, 3 is the average user, and 10 is the language designer/guru level):

  • Python - 6/10
  • C++ - 4/10
  • Perl - 3/10
  • Assembly - 3/10
  • HTML/JavaScript - 5/10
  • VB.NET - 5/10
  • C# - 5/10
  • Befunge - 2/10

As a tangent, my brother and his friends would use this technique for allowing Scrabble words. They had some threshold for number of Google hits before a word was considered 'real'

@Gilles yes it's my home. Dotfiles has the same rwxr-x-- permissions... wait no it doesn't! We have a winner! Apparently all directories in the path need to be non-world read/writable?

It looks to be something strange with the symlink behavior - when I rm authorized_keys && cp authorized_keys2 authorized_keys all is well.

@unR the manpage says "AuthorizedKeysFile is taken to be an absolute path or one relative to the user's home directory." - And after changing it to %h/.ssh/authorized_keys, still no dice.

Looks like PubkeyAuthentication yes is commented out... though manpage says yes is the default and uncommenting that seems to have no effect
