I'm at a public place, windows computers galore (library). I'm sshing into my ubuntu server box somewhere else. I open command prompt and remember that I read "you will be banned from using the computers if you make any changes to system files". (Sillily, it automatically restores from a restore point everyday). I have no intention whatsoever to hack into the computer.
If I'm sshing into my box it appears as though I'm "hacking" into the computer (because someone might see the white text on black screen). I'd like to somehow do it in a web browser with nice happy looking text, so that it actually represents what I'm doing; I'm not going to hack into the computer, I'm only using a computer somewhere else.
