So I almost fell out of my seat yesterday when I caught wind of the announcement that CSS nesting has landed in actual browsers and if you want to play around with them then you can do that in the latest version of Safari Technology Preview. This means it’s half a step away from landing in real browsers very soon.

Why You Should Still Love Telnet

Telnet, the protocol and the command line tool, were how system administrators used to log into remote servers. However, due to the fact that there is no encryption all communication, including passwords, are sent in plaintext meant that Telnet was abandoned in favour of SSH almost as soon as SSH was created.

For the purposes of logging into a remote server, you should never, and probably have never considered it. This does not mean that the telnet command is not a very useful tool when used for debugging remote connection problems.

In this guide, we will explore using telnet to answer the all too common question, “Why can’t I ###### connect‽”.
