make a secure connection to 123.234.345.546 with a remote username of whatever
your current username is.

        ssh 123.234.345.456

make a secure connection to deltaco.com with remote username of stimpy.

        ssh -l stimpy deltaco.com

if you see something about a protocol not being supported, try ssh1 with the
same args instead of ssh.

that's pretty much all there is to it.  couple of other things, like what
happens when the remote site changes computers or OS, but you'll cross that
bridge when you reach it.

17 Jan: ABC quotes Bush as saying he's considering a challenge of Roe v Wade.
22 Jan: President Bush's first act is to stop funding to organizations which
"promote" abortion.  He's also trying to reverse the decision on RU-486.
Keep in mind, he'll probably get to pick 4 supreme court justices.
23 Jan: Bush opens 1.5 mill acres of Alaskan wildlife refuge for oil drilling.
