Well, to be fair, if you've never needed it or felt the lack of it
before you genuinely haven't missed out on anything - it's going to be
super-useful for accessing and hopefully fixing your mischievous laptop
though. Personally, like most *nix admins I imagine a world without SSH
and shudder in horror. I'd actually have to prise my lazy arse from my
seat and go to the server room when something needs attention - which
would be inconvenient since half of the stuff I look after isn't even in
the same continent.

I know right?! I mean I lost all my house keys years ago and the doors
and windows are all boarded up but luckily there's always someone else
home to let me in! ïããÂï
