ssh curiosity

my ssh configuration has been driving me nuts, I had changed my default port, but; it kept insisting on on sending connections to a server through port 22(unless I was root) so my first thought was privileges were wrong. So I made sure I had as a user sufficient privileges. I checked the files in /etc/ssh with ls -l and everything seemed correct. It would accept connections from a client in the new port with no hiccups. I took a look in my /etc/ssh dir and saw two odd files, one was ssh_config~ and the other was sshd_config~, I removed these two files and that fixed the issue. The only thing I can figure was when I called up ssh as regular user it did not know which file to select so it just went with the system default of port 22.

Clipped wings

Schools out ! And it has brought trouble to my boss at home, his step son is now 18 and promptly went out and got a new truck payment, cell phone payment and insurance. He thinks his parents owe it to him to pay his debts,so he can go to school. even though his High School grades were not great. He has just being a slacker( as I was at his age) the boss wants him gone and the kids Mom does not see that as fair. I am torn, I think if he made an honest effort to go to Sinclair get registered and pay for it up front, than yes he should get to stay until he graduates college. On the other hand I think the kid would be happy as hell if he would get his on place and set his own rules. I lingered at home for a couple of years after HS and when I finally moved out I remembered thinking "why the hell did I wait so Long?". Not sure what will come of this the boss and his wife are in big fight over it the "D" word has been thrown around, unfortunately he has never been aloud to discipline the boy. Now it is all coming to a head, I think it is time for his step-son to spread his wings and fly away. Another reason why I am glad I do not have kids.

I try to keep Sunday's like that were I have nothing to do no chores no family events nothing but nothing. A little quit does me well!
