SSH Stuff

I've just managed to install a load of stuff onto my desktop as I didn't realise I wasn't connected to a remote machine via ssh.

G+ gave me a suggestion about changing the login colours on the remote machine so a bit of searching came up with this.

Connect via ssh and run

nano .bashrc

Add this lot in just above the last fi

#Make prompt colored when logged in remote
export NON_LOCAL_LOGIN=`env | grep SSH`
if [ "$NON_LOCAL_LOGIN" != "" ]; then
       PS1="\033[33m[\u@\h:\w]#\033[0m "

Save and close and you're sorted
