of course it's yours. that's why i called them sirius and uriel and
not A and B so you'd know. but yes, thanks for the pattern update...

now, ssh_config was just now converted to all tabs but with no effect.
uriel, sirius, localhost, and ceylon still ask for passwords...

bitching loudly about what? the indentation of the files pasted into

thanks for your time!
