Tunnels as a measure of insanity

[на български]

Okay, now here's documentary proof of my absolute and total lack of sanity. (if anybody should feel kinda lost and out-of-place reading this, rest assured - so do I! :)

Imagine a laptop and three servers (I wonder if you can). Imagine straylight, the laptop that drew the shortest straw and ended up in my hands. Imagine snark in the office LAN, with a webserver cuddling a Subversion repo. Imagine brionne at a colo center, in a soon-to-go-live rack, with a webserver cuddling another Subversion repo and an apt-proxy server. Imagine kislev at the same colo center, but in a different, already-live rack.

Imagine two SSH sessions.

straylight to kislev:

  • -R8080:snark:80
  • -R6502:localhost:6502
  • -R9999:localhost:9999

straylight to brionne:

  • -R8080:snark:80
  • -L6502:brionne:80
  • -L9999:brionne:9999

Aye. Now imagine a couple of parallel Subversion imports, check-outs, and check-ins, and an apt-get dist-upgrade on the side.

Nope, I'm not bragging. I'm not complaining. I'm not ranting, either. Just - as I said at the start - providing documentary evidence of insanity.
