[web-team] Hmm, access to the server...

  I'm not sure if this is a sign of something bad happening, or merely
  me being empty-headed about my own passwords again.  I could hvve 
  sworn that I'd gotten all my sites running on keys.

  If the www.svlug.org machine is supposed to be using ssh keys, then
  it isn't asking for the passphrase to mine;  it's demanding a real
  password, and it's doing this for both ssh version 1 or 2 protocol.
  Stunned, I tried to enter what I thought would be my password, anyway.
  I appear to have forgotten the right one though.  

  (Funny;  I changed my *workstation* password recently; you'd think
  that would be the one I'd forget.  But noooo.)

  I probably did something clever that I thought I'd remember, and once
  my fingers have forgotten it I have no idea myself.  Embarrassing.  
  Hope to hear from someone soon.

  Anyways if one of us who isn't so detained could drop the following
  into ~star/.ssh/authorized_keys I'd appreciate it.

.... BEGIN public portion of Heather's usual ssh key ....
ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAABIwAAAIEAr3Rjz5dxirUYpc0dVSPsKAIMHB/Ad0aOgE7NKS5vVIE5wfr53+WiHQuPStEvkVEl9lgnKlSP9kxnvPGV/avtNew0H7P77zviG7tEC6/XSr+sLx/zajRsQD7a6eNkFUzPsAAAGwc3IsiiGnyOm/S5JU7GuPOHfGDtu1l7KfUpe+k= star at betelgeuse
.... end ................................................

  Although arranging a spare moment when I can get access and restore
  the password to something I *can* actually remember would be a good 
  idea. While I don't need it to do web work, if anybody wants me to do
  some work via sudo at some point I'd need it then.  

Sorry for the inconvenience.
