OSX Home, End, Pg Up, Pg Down

Home, End, Pg Up and Pg Down, keys I use like a crazy-person. And yet, for reasons probably designed to break my mind and will, Apple opted for a fairly different and totally varying use for these keys. I wager it’s some sort of nod to super old-school Unix practices. Nevertheless, I’ve ripped out some hair over this and had many brief returns to Linux for my desktop platform over it.

Anyway, mainly for my own purposes, here’s the solution that ended up meeting my needs: http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/26930/how-can-i-achieve-page-up-and-page-down-in-os-x/123160#123160

Add RSYNC to VMware ESXi 5.x

I’ve recently sufficiently mastered rsync to use it everywhere, constantly.

ESXi doesn’t have rsync bundled, cause you know, when 16GB flash drives cost $8, you need to keep your hypervisor footprint down to a few MB? I dunno.

Anyway, here’s where to download a build of rsync that’ll work on there: http://damiendebin.net/blog/2013/12/06/esxi-5-dot-1-and-rsync/

I just SCPed the file over in to my /opt/ and then symlinked it in to my path.
