Hehe....if I had known I was on a remote server, I wouldn't have been
reading their man pages.  =)  The thing is, I use aterm and plain ol'
telnet to check my e-mail on my shell account...but I was sitting at the
prompt, and did a man afterstep.  Since it gave me a man page, I thought
nothing of it. 

Since then, I've changed my prompts so that they don't match.  =)
