Today the software and the devices we use are more data intensive and the amount of data they are using is quite high.
SLT or Sri Lanka Telecom forced users like me to chance to a connection which provides higher data speeds,yet having a Fair Usage Policy Quota by making the previous connection very slow.
But now this quota is proving to be not enough and needs to be increased if we are to have a proper internet experience.
Youtube, Facebook and all the other commonly used websites now stream all the media in HD. So if you watch a 20 minute video it consumes more than 1GB. How on earth we are supposed to cope with 20GB???
I am a regular internet user who has not downloaded a single torrent in the last month. Yet my speeds are reduced. Is this really Fair??
Join with me to sign the following petition on Change.Org and force SLT to be more customer focused than being just another ISP.
This is a story about me purchasing a domain and asking the help from the domain name provider. Company is 1&1 Internet. WTF is wrong with this company, they have no sense of security being in an industry where they really need you to be worried about the security.
Just read from the bottom and you can comment of course
I have been working with AWS (Amazon Web Services) with EC2 (Elastic Computing) instances (Cloud Instances). I had some trouble connecting to them. So I thought of sharing how you could do this in few easy ways.
At the point of creating the instance you can associate an existing key pair or can create one for you. When you create the key file your key will automatically start downloading. Keep that safe and use it to connect. This will have the “pem” extension. Let’s say the file is AWS.pem
This is the easiest way as long as you are on linux or cygwin on windows. Assuming you are connecting to an Ubuntu Server instance.
# using a google IP for demonstration purposes
# Using Elastic IP
ssh -i AWS.pem email@example.com
# Using Public DNS
ssh -i AWS.pem firstname.lastname@example.org
Pinehead has a nice video explaining everything about using Putty. Only difference is the user name is root. For ubuntu server you can’t connect as root. It’s always “sudo” after connecting using the user “ubuntu”
Other commercial tools such as XShell which provides free access for non-commercial/personal/student basis have the support built-in. You can just select the keyfile to use when connecting with the user:ubuntu/root and the Elastic IP/Public DNS
