I thought I’d share this little tip on how to easily forward X stuff (including over SSH), when needing to

I love technology, and have been involved with it for over thirty years. I'm a IT manager, a seasoned network, storage, Unix and virtualisation guy. I love to code (mmm, sweet sweet Python), and I django, SQLalchemy, Eve and pytest when I'm behaving. I'm also a DJ, and photographer.
And so it has come at last — my removal and replacement of VMware ESXi at home, with something better, known as Proxmox. This post seeks to document the journey a bit, and give a tip or two along the way.

The guys that work with me in my team are awesome. They’re also all a bit spaz in their own, awesome way.

So this guy, lets call him Captain Jabbermonkey, is talking to his father (a doctor) about some medical thing on the phone. His Dad asks if he is still smoking e-cigarettes, which Captain Jabbermonkey is.
His Dad then says, “Why would you even smoke that shit?!? It’s a battery, it electricity… that’s like sucking on R2D2’s dick.”
“I’ve never seen Star Wars,” Captain replies. His father cracks up laughing and hangs up on him.
