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
