keeping your programs active even after remote session is closed

A very common scenario when we execute some code on a remote machine using a ssh session is the when the connection terminates the program or script is also killed. A very simple solution is using a utility program called screen. On Ubuntu you can install screen using

$ sudo apt-get install screen

Now all you need to do is to start  a screen session on the remote machine. Just type in

screen

in terminal. This will start a new screen session.

Now like what you do in a normal terminal session just run your script say your tensorflow code

$ python seq2seq.py

Every screen session is assigned an ID which we will use later. Now say while your model is learning you want to exit the remote connection. One important thing to do just before exiting is detaching from the screen session

Simply type in ‘ctrl+a‘ followed by ‘d‘, ‘ctrl+a‘ is for entering screens command line mode and ‘d‘ is simply to detach from the current session.  Now you can safely exit.

Next time you login typein

$ screen -ls

this will list active screen sessions along with their IDs. To enter a particular session simply typein

$ screen -r ID

ex

$ screen -r 20873.tty2.amitn

which takes you to the selected screen session and voila you have your code running.

 

freedom

Let’s imagine you were going through a rough time in life (could be a loss of a loved one, a failed relationship, a missed job opportunity). It’s been quite sometime now, nothing seems to be working.. 

You’re frustrated.. depressed.. you think people are not the same anymore.. You have a different perspective for every little thing in life.. You get hurt by a common argument.. The world is you’r enemy..


Now let’s say it was all a dream.. Life is still where you left it.. (it’s not completely true but let’s assume it is for now). Even though you were dreaming but your consciousness got updated somehow (entanglement might be but let’s not make assumptions here). With this new experience now your reflexes are slow as are your words. Many things that interested you before now seems senseless.. Now you’re not part of the game instead you are an observer. You don’t judge things or people they appear to be correct in their domains. You analyze the process and notes what went and why. There is no wrong or right. There is no winner, no loser.. Everything is a chance, a chance where you choose to be part of that observed reality. Now you don’t pursue the visible. Your imagination is unbounded. You are free. 

swapping cmd/super and ctrl keys on linux

This post is for people switching from mac to linux. The most frustrating part of the transition which i face was getting accustomed to keyboard shortcuts. In mac world most things are cmd + X but with linux/windows it’s ctrl + X. So just swapping super/cmd with ctrl seems to be the easiest way to make things better. Here are steps to do the same

  1. fire up terminal and modify the file /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/pc using your favorite editor
    sudo xed /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/pc
  2. file looks something like this swapkeys
  3. notice the lines key <LCTL> and key <LWIN> modify them to looks as in image above do the same for RCTL and RWIN.
  4. logout and you’re done.

 

life in xii dimension … the beginning

Thinking of the times when dreams were reality...
 Now my life's a dream and falling is humanity...  


 I followed the curves , followed curiosity...
 Waited for light but it was gravity... 


Fade into darkness the mind still dreams...
 So breaking in pieces, makes us free...




This is my love, there's my fate...
 Reaching singularity, it is my grave...




The door is open, dimensions separate ...
 There was the god, making our ways ...




Make no mistakes, man's strange ...
 Even the traitor's hiding so safe ...

surrender to calmness ….

it has always been about you, not me …
its O.K. coz everything seems perfect around you, not me …

you were the hope, you were the cause …
now everything’s a mess coz you are gone …

they need a reason, im the one to blame …
surprised and startled, i lit the flame …

i wanted the answers, adsorbed by emotions …
i know they are rare, but for now …
i know the exceptions …

Don’t ever …
i hear the warning sounds …
hunched for a moment …
Don’t worry …
i had a habit to make them calm …
