 Oh, yeah, nobody logs onto their machine at home.  Right.  If you run an
ssh server, you can use it to grab files from home instead of messing with
annoying floppy disks.  I check my email when I'm at work using ssh, since
all my accounts are forwarded to my home computer.  Of course, using telnet
would be a really bad idea, but the port might well be open.  You would be
sending your password in clear text over the network if you used telnet.
