In a previous blog post I documented how I built a “Build Server” to deploy .NET 4.6+ apps on windows 2012 server.
While this worked, and was a reasonably good way to do it, It wasn’t without it’s problems. During it’s use for example I frequently had timing problems, where just one little change to some JS code would cause NPM to overrun a time out by half a second, or where an SSH connection timed out just slightly before the build server completed it’s login, and on top of all that, it regularly used to take about 15 minutes to build and deploy the project it was being used for.

It’s been a little while since I posted something ultra geeky and ultra useful, so after been spurned on by a post that I answered earlier today on the LinkedIn, Open source group, I thought I’d do a little snippet on some useful tricks, and Impart some Linux/Unix goodness with you all.
