These are my saved Pinboard links for 10th November 2012:

  • Salt-Fried Pork | Serious Eats : Recipes – Living in England means Thanksgiving is pretty much just me and Mr. English. Actually, this year, there will be three of us, but you get the picture. No giant roast bird. No plethora of pies. No smorgasbord of sides. It just doesn't make sense.

    But however nontraditional our Thanksgiving is, I still want it to taste traditional. Because here in the UK, I work on Thanksgiving Thursday, and then come home eager to celebrate my favorite holiday. So I had to come up with something that not only felt traditional and American, but was also could be easy and simple to throw together.

    Hence, the turkey pie. A little British accent in our classic Thanksgiving feast. I use my food processor to jet-slice celery, carrots, onions, garlic, and mushrooms. I stew them with ground dark meat turkey, fresh mossy thyme, deeply savory Worcestershire sauce, wine, and stock. They blip together on the stove for a few minutes, and then I spout them off into a beautiful baking dish, cover with store-bought puff pastry, paint it with milk, bake it, and voila. This gorgeous, puffed, steaming meal full of turkey and vegetables and salty, crunchy pastry emerges from the oven, ready to over-stuff me and Mr. English, or to share with our one Thanksgiving guest.

    It tastes like home. It feels hearty. It's classic, if a bit different. And it's Thanksgiving for just a few in under an hour.

  • An Illustrated Guide to SSH Agent Forwarding – The Secure Shell is widely used to provide secure access to remote systems, and everybody who uses it is familiar with routine password access. This is the easiest to set up, is available by default, but suffers from a number of limitations. These include both security and usability issues, and we hope to cover them here.

    In this paper, we'll present the various forms of authentication available to the Secure Shell user and contrast the security and usability tradeoffs of each. Then we'll add the extra functionality of agent key forwarding, we hope to make the case that using ssh public key access is a substantial win.
