My fourteen-year-old daughter has taught herself to access and get
around in my linux box. Even managed to shoulder surf my root password
and figured out how to restart ipmasquerading when I have left it down
after using ax-25. Of course, she was 13 at the time :-) Now if she
would only figure out how to rewrite the ipfwadm script so I can have
the ipmasq out the modem and ether, plus the ax25 for me.
