Erk... I guess I never did mention that this comes up most often for
me when on a school windows machine with no ssh tools installed.  I
keep my home machine locked down pretty tight so am loath to enable
telnet or ftp.  Ftp wouldn't help anyway unless emacs were installed
on the school windows machine. However apache can be run in a secure

With ssh access it isn't an issue unless you wanted other classmates
to be able to access the same stuff you see. In this case none of them
are emacs users anyway, so even if I enabled telnet it wouldn't help
much.  Many computer users at school know nothing of emacs, but know
how to browse with IExplorer... he he.
