At least I'm safe with all my servers on C Shell. Thank you Bill Joy!
I have long since given up the use of passwd's for DSA keys in ssh.
I had always considered Bob Beck's post the definitive guide concerning ssh'ing as root, but it seems a number of users feel otherwise.

Either way, you don't need to be the Amazing Kreskin [amazingkreskin.com] to predict that your favorite OS + ZFS is a big step forward.

Judge Jackson, where are you when we need you most?
Are you insane?
If you took all the insecurities of every other OS out there from 1995 and combined them, they could touch all the problems and insecurities DOS/windows had with a 10 foot pole.
That is because Novell had been focusing on the new GOSIP protocol stack instead of TCP/IP v4.
and ZFS is available to Mac OS X systems as an add on. Both opensource, and as of this week, a commercial version is available.
There is very little reason to be running a system with out ZFS, unless you are running AIX, HP-UX or IRIX.
regardless of the time, it beats loosing all of your data.

And you are upping an Optimator or a Celebrator with what????????????
