You Hide, Disappear

Te esconder, desaparecer, nunca
Nunca, nunca

I’ve always been a sonically-motivated runner, although my running playlists have tended to stay quite as constrained as my ability, previously only being able to manage 1 1/2 – 2 miles, I’ve tended to stick to songs that have a bit of emotional stab or musical push to offer up a quick rush of adrenaline, something to my head down and my mentality to dig in.

But now I’m managing to push longer distances, I’m finding much better escape from songs that do quite the opposite, taking me away from the run entirely, and my current favourite, kicking in around 3 miles, is Trials and Way’s tribute to Brazilian pixação artist, Francisco Rodrigues da Silva (Nunca).

The second the ghetto-blaster button clunk drops the analog hiss is like an instant release of pressure, and while the lyrics make explicit mention of the streets and alleys of Sao Paulo, when the choral harmonies flow underneath the dream guitar, running app, trainers and footfall might as well be miles away. Pure motion.

Getting Around SSH in Coda with a Config File

I’ve been a big fan of Coda the last few years of using it (for non-version controlled projects, having a version of Transmit built into the software has come good time and again). The one rare, problem I’ve picked up using it is it can struggle with projects connecting over SSH, without much documentation for a workaround.

I spent ages sure my fingers must be failing me rather than the tech, mixing and messing with login details until I eventually discovered that you can supersede the settings that are entered in the project bookmark by adding a config file into the .ssh folder with details to match it. After adding that, a quick reboot of the software and Coda should pick it up automatically.

Documented gist of what exactly should match up is below, and a comment-free version (as it should be in the .ssh folder) below that.
