If I had an always-on high speed internet connection, there are
several things I'd have to change, I guess. As it is, one box is
episodically on the net by dial-up. A router connects me to 4 other
computers and a printer, variously by cable or wireless. I'm so far
out in the boonies that anybody dinking on my wireless would be
noticable and subject to um... analog countermeasures. I can't think
of a reason why telnet is bad in that context.
In any case, I'd still have to copy and paste the date from one window
to another to do date -s. rsh by root would be more elegant.
