How to Hide Digsby Ads

I use Digsby as my instant messenger client. A couple minutes ago, I received an update which set ads to display in the conversation windows by default. I immediately decided I'd try to figure out how to remove the ads, or switch back to Pidgin, the free open source client. Turns out it was simple to turn off the ads. When you're done, you'll need to reopen your conversation windows to see the changes.

From the Buddy List window:

  1. Tools -> Preferences
  2. Conversations
  3. Uncheck "Support Digsby development by showing an ad in the IM window"

How to Fix Linux SSH: Permission denied (publickey).

I just got done setting up a user in my new developer environment on multiple boxes. I made sure to copy over the authorized_keys file exactly, including the correct 0600 permissions, but kept getting the "Permission denied (publickey)" error when trying to ssh into one box, even though all the others worked.

What finally solved it for me was to make sure the user's password is set:

# passwd <user>

If that doesn't work, make sure the user's .ssh directory is chmod 0700 and the user's authorized_keys file is chmod 0600.
