Remote editing with Sublime Text and sshfs

I was allocated to a big new project and i am required to edit my codes remotely. I’ve always finished a project or two using VIM on remote servers but now i would like to change my old habits and write codes with sublime. This guide will teach you how to use your Linux machine and Sublime Text  to edit your codes remotely.

sshfs (SSH Filesystem)

sshfs mounts and help you edit directories and files on your remote server.

1. First you  need to install sshfs

On Debian, Ubuntu  or Linux Mint

sudo apt-get install sshfs

On RHEL / CentOS

# yum install fuse-sshfs

2. Mount your remote folder to your local directory

 # mkdir -p /mnt/ssh # sshfs kalmario@10.28.5.121:/data/project_folder/ /mnt/ssh/ 

3. Open your Sublime and open directory /mnt/ssh

 

Disclaimer: This method is working great on me because my remote server is just a build away. I’ll try it on a rackspace server which is a continent away from me and post if the lag time is still manageable and not irritating.

Threadless, Philippine Customs and ridiculous tax rates

That’s a whopping 36.79% TAX!!!!

Last week we ordered thirteen shirts at threadless.com ranging from $9.99 to $14.00. The total bill was $196.72 (13 shirts $148.40 + $48.32 UPS Express Saver 1-3 days shipping time), this is roughly PHP 8,350.

However yesterday i was informed that the custom has held our shipment because we need to pay taxes. i am not sure how this was computed but the total tax was PHP 3,072, that’s a whopping 36.79% TAX!!!! Back in 2010 we shipped eight shirts from the same website and we paid no taxes. A friend told me that they might thought that our goods are for sale because of the quantity and charged us higher taxes.
