On that note:

case $1 in
	bolt) 	LOGIN=fryman; HOST=shell.sonic.net;;
	rd)		LOGIN=root; HOST=dubhe;;
	dubhe)  LOGIN=troy; HOST=dubhe;;
	saiph)  LOGIN=troy; HOST=saiph;;
	qc) 	LOGIN=qc; HOST=shell.sonic.net;;
	crime)	LOGIN=root; HOST=sherlock.crimescene.com;;
	stogie) LOGIN=troy; HOST=www.stogie.us;;
	op4s)	LOGIN=op4s; HOST=shell.sonic.net;;
	z)		LOGIN=root; HOST=zaurus;;
	*) 		echo "Unknown arg"; exit 1;;

## end

I called this script 'rs'  To log into Sonic's shell server as 'fryman' I do:
$ rs bolt

Likewise, to log into my zaurus:
$ rs z

Simple, but very useful to me -- and now you know some of my usernames.  Happy
hacking ;-)
