7 It's not all time wasted :-) In fact, I would say you've learned a ton
8 of stuff that will stand you in very good stead for the future. You now
9 know how to export X11 over the network, which is one of the basic
10 things X was designed to do. However, very very very few Linux users
11 seem to know how to do it :-)
13 You know the secret to getting a DM to allow it all in the first place,
14 and you also know what to do when ssh capabilities are on the server.
16 So all round it sounds like a useful exercise you went through. In fact
17 it sounds *exactly* like the stuffing around I had to do when I learned
18 the same lessons :-)
