> I will be speaking at Rubi Con (http://www.rubi-con.org/) in

> possibly some other things.

The best hidden secret in the vnc documentation is the complete login
session that is possible with the configuration as described on
http://www.sourcecodecorner.com/articles/vnc/linux.asp. Since vncviewer has
verry low system requirements, it provides a complete X11 terminal on about
every hardware in the world. Think of it: running CDE or KDE on your
palmtop! With PC based X11 terminals, I don't even like to run a complete
CDE session on anything lower than a 10 MBit network, with VNC it even runs
over ISDN.
