I see that you've already gotten help on this, but for some reason
this reminded me of a neat little thing you can do to jazz up SSH
for your users. If you edit the /etc/motd file, you can change what
people see when they log on, so if you'd like them to see ASCII art
or a specific message, you can have some fun. (:
