Needed a slight refresher to get the http://~~dom~~/#3May anchor link right. Had to add the word 'anchor' just to make searching for this page directly in the database with psql a little easier:

phil=> select url,domain from posted_article where body ~ 'anchor';
         url         |    domain
---------------------+---------------
 /old-posts-may-2018 | perl-user.com
(1 row)

As usual, w3schools did not fail me: HTML links

A link with #something on it goes to the html element with the id named "something". Easy to remember now, having written it. Oh yeah, capitalization really matters on id names (and class names too of course).

Someone gets around:

root@perl-user:~ grep aiurea /var/log/secure|grep Invalid
May 15 06:13:33 perl-user sshd[9990]: Invalid user aiurea from 59.30.245.231 port 42576
May 16 07:30:49 perl-user sshd[23469]: Invalid user aiurea from 61.81.215.223 port 35054
May 16 18:46:20 perl-user sshd[29367]: Invalid user aiurea from 203.219.111.202 port 60990
59.30.245.231 is Republic of Korea - Chuncheon
61.81.215.223 is Republic of Korea - Cheongju-si
203.219.111.202 is Sydney, Australia
This is just according to one geolocation site. Netblocks move around and information varies a lot. Sometimes one site will say an IP is in Russia and another site will say the IP is in the Netherlands. Not much of a identifier if you ask me.

As a romanian word, aiurea does sort of point in a direction, whether the user himself or herself was Romanian, no clue.

It took 294 dependant packages to get perl-DBIx-Class installed. Wow!

I always forget that the port option varies between ssh and scp.

ssh -p XXXX host 

versus 

scp -P XXXX [file-to-copy] [host]:[directory]
Note: that capital P on scp always trips me up =)
