I'd discovered NiftyTelnet+SSH over the summer and use it quite a bit. I
don't need frequent access to the YDL box, but I've twice had it freez
on me (kernel panic?) which is likely due to an infrequently encountered
config but I might have in the .config I made for the 2.2.12 kernel I
last implemented. So, there are times that "direct" access to the
terminal would be handy without needing to shutdown. I like the idea of
the DrBott switch. It's expensive, but it's not my money. Hopefully it
will work well, as others here have hinted. When it gets here, I'll post
my findings...
