Thre isn't anyone else to do that. I have three (3) users who
can actually log on to my system: root, jmccarty, and jjennings. The
first I presume you know about, the second is me, and the
third is a guy who logs in to do ftp when I am at his site,
with a direct ethernet connection. He hasn't logged in since
about last March. And my contract with his company ended in August,
so he won't ever be logging in again, almost surely. I've
considered deleting his user. I use a firewalled router
between my machine and my DSL modem, which has stealthed
all ports except for the email challenge port, which is

(There are other users, like games, and rpm etc, but login
is blocked.)
