Google Compute Engine without a proper PC?

Posted at — Jun 8, 2014

My laptop crashed recently and while I was trying to repair it I also needed to get some work done. Trying to manipulate GCE without a real command line is a bit of a challenge. It certainly means I cannot audit anything, retry a command that might have failed, and so on. Creating a docker command line container with the necessary tools seems to be the only way… along with a terminal program for the browser.I’ll write this up later.
