SSH Keys in macOS Sierra

For the most part, I love macOS Sierra. It has a few quirks, but I enjoy my experience day-to-day, specially on my new 2016 MacBook Pro. The part that keeps frustrating me, was having to keep entering my passphrase for my public key, every time I tried to use SSH or do a git push/pull.

XKCD, one of my favourite online comics, has done an excellent graphic detailing the comparative shift of temperature in the planet. This graph clearly outlines how the planet has gone through minor temperature fluctuations in years past, but is accelerating exponentially now.

I would like to note that I have NOT verified any of the data that XKCD has used to make their graph, so I can not confirm it’s accuracy. Given the scientific depth that XKCD usually uses to make their comics, I tend to lean on the side of believing their interpretation of the data. Of course, I invite you to verify the data yourself.
