Psst. Open beta.

Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:

  • » The open beta is running a copy of the database that will not carry over to the final version. Don't post anything you don't mind losing.
  • » If you wish to use your user account, you will probably need to reset your password.
Your feedback is appreciated via the form on the beta page. Thanks! -Jon & CLFU Team

*I run this with byobu as as a custom status bar entry that runs every 10 seconds by putting it in a script here:

.byobu/bin/10_update_windows

There's no output to stdout, so nothing is displayed on the status bar.

*Presumes that #{pane_title} is set to the hostname or prompt containing the host name. In my case, it's in this format:

$USER@$HOSTNAME:$PWD

The sed commands may need to be modified if your pane_title is different.

*If you want to strip out a common part of a hostname, add the following before '| uniq'

-e 's/[COMMON PART]//'

I use that to strip out the domain of the servers I connect to, leaving the subdomain.
