of course you mean ssh.   ;-)

only for non-login shells.   telnet gives a login shell, so i think the
relevent file would be .bash_profile.  if you place it in .bashrc, you won't
have it available in consoles unless you place "source $HOME/.bashrc" in

the ONLY thing i miss about csh is not being able to say the word
"dot-sea-shark".   :)
