GitLab 2FA recovery

I sacrificed my 2FA device to the gods of Roskilde Festival last week. And the recovery codes for GitLab I had kept turned out to be outdated.

Fortunately, the sneaky bastards at GitLab allows you to generate new recovery keys via SSH:

ssh 2fa_recovery_codes

It's always exciting to see creative uses of SSH like this. And – of course – equally exciting being able to recover your account, even after messing things up like I did.
