git stuff 

Something I learned in my ~3rd year of using git that has saved my ass many times: `git commit -am [commit message]` should be avoided. You inevitably end up auto-adding files you shouldn't, and the CLI encourages short commit messages.

Significantly better to do `git commit -v -a`. This pulls up your default editor and shows you the diff of the changes you are about to commit. You can see if any unwanted files/changes are about to be committed, and easily enter a verbose description.

ssh tech mystery, help? 

For a few months now, when I ssh to one particular machine from Win10 via Putty or WinSCP, after entering valid credentials I get this error: "remote side unexpectedly closed network connection." For Putty, this happens on stable 0.74, the current dev snapshot, and even an older version, 0.60. WinSCP is the latest stable version.

When I ssh from the same machine, booted into linux, it works fine.

I found only unanswered support threads googling for the error message.

I made a toy that generates "What vibes do I give off?" style memes from Wikipedia categories. Enjoy.
