Extreme Tech Fun!
Well, if I wasn't a tech already, I'm definitely heading down that slippery slope now! Just recently, I got a recommendation from a friend to get VirtualBox, an awesomely powerful virtual machine suite. I got it and installed Debian 6.0.6 and Ubuntu 12.04 on virtual hard drives. Then, for some extremely geeky fun, I played around with SSH on the virtual machines. I had to configure the virtual network settings a bit, but that was pretty easy. I SSHed as root into the Debian machine, which was already running a web server, then was able to play around with my knowledge of Unix and command-line operation. I used the super-cool command-line tool nano to edit the index.html file of the /var/www folder. Then, on my Windows 7 OS, I was able to view the website without any difficulty! Should you ever feel the need to play around with SSH, Unix-based systems have it built in, and on Windows, you can download the program PuTTY, which is a standalone SSH client. Have fun!
