VNC Tunnel using ssh Expect script

Just a Little script i wrote to log on to a server and set up a ssh tunnel mapping a remote VNC port to your local machine. If the connection is refused the script will keep trying at increased intervals. To make the script work you need to create a credentials file and put the following in it: set username "yoursshusername" set passwd "yoursshpassword" Remember to chmod the credentials file, just in case, because the details are stored in plain text. You will need to edit the script to point at your credentials file and server name. #! /usr/bin/expect

Lou Krieger

Quote 42 - Responsibilities

It is our responsibilities, not ourselves, that we should take seriously.

Margaret Mead

Quote 39 - Creationism

Creationists believe that man was instantaneously created by God based on an account in a book called "the Bible." Several thousand years ago, a small tribe of ignorant near-savages wrote various collections of myths, wild tales, lies, and gibberish. Over the centuries, these stories were embroidered, garbled, mutilated, and torn into small pieces that were then repeatedly shuffled. Finally, this material was badly translated into several languages successively. The resultant text, creationists feel, is the best guide to this complex and technical subject.

I just Discovered it's brilliant is a UK-based Internet radio and music community website and it's totally awesome, it is pretty accurate at guessing what type of music you fancy listening to. All you need to do is tell it 'i want to listen to stuff like chemical brothers' for example and it will stream a constant taiored radio station to you for free, if it plays something you don't like, then click a button and you'll never hear it again. It remembers the choices you make and your stream changes according to your tastes.
