I wanted to have a repeated calendar event for Mother’s day, but it’s custom logic required making an ICS file and importing it into Google Calendar.
Inspired by/how to import into Google Cal How to Set up Repeating Event in Google Calendar on Last Day of the Month
Your user should be in the boinc group:
usermod -a -G boinc $(whoami)
Than change GUI login file perms:
sudo chmod 640 /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg
And then symlink it into your home:
cd ~; ln -s /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg gui_rpc_auth.cfg

Some of my client websites get hacked. Some shared hosting providers provide some virus scanning tools, but it’s not always enough and what about those who even don’t provide malware scanning. Hopefully they provide SSH access and AI-BOLIT can be used. It’s a free website virus and malware scanner for websites.
Just download it, unzip and upload to your desired host. Copy it into the root directory of your website.
Last run it
php ai-bolit.php --mode=2
or not paranoid/normal mode
On my notebook I finally decided to try NetworkManager with its applet
After installing. I had to check status of some networking services and disable them.
systemctl status dhcpcd.service
sudo systemctl stop netctl.service
sudo systemctl stop firstname.lastname@example.org
sudo systemctl status email@example.com
sudo systemctl stop firstname.lastname@example.org
And then wait for the magic after starting NetworkManager
sudo systemctl start NetworkManager.service
I should have searched for a how to video on YouTube and could save some debugging time with
journalctl -f 🙂 After setup I found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAi9DurTRQc

Also added to my Awesome window manager config
Open dynamic port forward with SSH
ssh -D 8080 REMOTE_HOST
Then via Firefox visit
Under Network Settings -> Manual proxy configuration set ONLY SOCKS host IP/DNS name and port.
To test proxying go to https://www.whatismyip.com/ to check your public IP if it changed
To monitor progress of an ongoing copy or mysql dump import you might try progress CLI tool. Track progress of commands like cp, mv, dd, tar, cat, rsync, grep, fgrep, egrep, cut, sort, md5sum, sha1sum, sha224sum, sha256sum, sha384sum, sha512sum, adb, gzip, gunzip, bzip2, bunzip2, xz, unxz, lzma, unlzma, 7z, 7za, zcat, bzcat, lzcat, split, gpg, etc.
