Cannot logged in with public key even after public key inside $HOME/.ssh on Centos

Things could be straight with Ubuntu, but not in my Centos VPS. So try the following if you met the same problem:

1) $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys must be in 640 permission
2) $HOME/.ssh must be in 0700 permission

It should work right away later on.

Cheapest Virtual Private Server (VPS) according to memory and hard disk consideration

As a ROM avid compiler, I don't want to use my local machine to do the compilation job, as it'll use more electricity and reduce and efficiency of doing job.

So I decided to find VPS which has ample hard disk size and big RAM, at least 6GB RAM.

So I found several choices.

Contabo - 6GB RAM and 500GB HDD for EUR 7.99

Waveride - 4GB RAM, 4 cores CPU, 50GB HDD at EUR5

SSDApp  -  6GB RAM, Intel Xeon 3.4 Ghz (no detail on cores) and 210 GB SATA III Storage at EUR9


Feel free to try and share your experience here :)

Vultr - another reliable alternative for SEA Virtual Private Server!

I have been using Vultr as my recent VPS now, since it has just a nearby Data Center in Singapore (sadly, Malaysian VPS is always expensive.. so the best option is DC in Singapore - most of the time).

It provides free trial credit for around USD5.. and +USD2 if you did a social media integration/sharing with Twitter.

Try it now. Click Vultr

YES broadband dongle with Linux



I saw a banner here at my hostel telling that there is free YES dongle for the students. So I then went to Dewan Sri Iskandar and queued up for the dongle.

After I unpacked  the box it seems the manual provides howtos for Mac and Windows only. So I googled up, searching if anyone got experience with Linux.

Turns out that YES officially provided Linux client (in BETA). Here goes the link
