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.

Thankfully, Rob Allen has put together a nice short guide on fixing SSH key problems on macOS Sierra. If you are a developer, and running macOS Sierra, I highly encourage you to check it out.

Earth Temperature Timeline

The earth is always in a constant state of temperature change. This has been true since long before humans were here, and will continue long after we are gone. The question of the last couple generations has been; Are Humans causing an above average temperature shift?

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.
