I don't have a way to ssh in right now but that is a good idea though. 
I may just do a blank screen saver, for now.  Maybe when I get one of my
other three rigs up and running, I can try the ssh idea.  I network them
all through here anyway.  Just sort of reverse the idea.

Me no good with bash, unless it is a crawling bug.  LOL
