I haven't made a blog in a long while, so I'd thought I'd share this, which I recently discovered how to do.
If you find the idea of proxies a bit restrictive. because after all, they have to be set up in the applications in question, and may not work for some applications, help is here. And all you need is an SSH server you can connect to. Sadly, this method requires root, but it's worth having for the system-wide Internet connection you'll get from it.
Authenticating as root
First, make sure you're root on the client machine (sudo -s or su -, depending on your distro), and that you can ssh as root to your target server. This is of course causes security implications, so it may be a good idea to generate a key pair for root-to-root access and block off passworded access for root, so that no one can bruteforce your root password.
I love the game Sauerbraten. But I can think of lots of ways I think it could be improved. I'll of course try to help this happen, and might update this list (and add suggestions!).
1. Proper gravity (including flying objects, perhaps toggle gravity of objects) 2. Fire hurts 3. Gunge/Poison 4. Circles/spheres easy creation 5. Saving of objects/big stuff for later 6. Admin coop AKA Play God - in which only the master can use editmode - great fun for "playing god" and wreaking havoc when no one else can. 7. Heightmaps in multiplayer (H key) 8. Breath (eg you die underwater after a while, like in Quake) 9. More ambient soundtracks, ambient noises. 10. Button triggers (eg you press or shoot something and something happens). 11. Proper doors that open or swing 12. Moving objects (automatic or manual via button/trigger) - eg trains. 13. Large walls of teleport material, for e.g. trains, yourselves. 14. Materials that change to others after a certain time, e.g. noclip slowly to air 15. Door k…
If I were to tell you that I was taking two apples and three oranges home, you'd know what I mean.
Algebra's the same.
You'd know that if I told you that my friend Geoff (I don't have a friend called Geoff) came home with three more apples and five more oranges, that we would have a fruit party, because we're pathetically hungry.
Using algebra is just the same as having shorthand. Maybe it's not the concept, but it's the shorthand that bothers some people?
I don't know that if algebra is difficult for one person then arithmetic is also difficult, but do let me know if it is this way for you!
All algebra's doing is giving things shorter names so that they can be manipulated more quickly. Perhaps that's where the issues start?
If this therefore confuses you, it may be something deeper.
I'm going to have the letter "r" short for oranges here, as having "o" is too much like zero:
