Building on this article and this video I figured I would spell out some of the details of using multiple ssh keys with github. I re-read the article a few times before I found the comments which spelled out what I finally needed to be able to have multiple email accounts each with a different ssh key for github repos. This article applies to a Mac running OSX but could easily be adapted to linux platforms.

First do: which sed
and replace the /usr/bin/sed below with your path to sed)

I'm struggling with a peculiar little problem. My old faithful windows 10 computer will never eject the USB thumb drive. It doesn't ever show any errors. Its quite puzzling.

I recently purchased a cool new 4 TB external WD hard drive for backups. When I plugged it in and rebooted my computer, I got a black screen and never saw windows boot up. I spent some time looking at various posts but never found anything useful so I thought I'd post my solution here.

I use a device called an OBI100 with google voice to make and receive phone calls when at home. This allows me to use the same phone number for voice/cell/texts etc. It only cost me about $30 btw. Recently, I hit a snag.
When I tried to make a phone call, after I dialed the number, a voice reported: "no service error please login to obitalk and configure your device"
