Sorry about neglecting to respond to rack that I'd created the account,
and for neglecting to chmod the password. Is there a script others use
for creating that file? I've been doing it manually and forgetting a
step, apparently. I just checked, and I've done that on 5 other
accounts. Ooops! (BTW, for people reading along at home, passwords on
pony accounts are mostly only used for sudo apt-get; ssh logins require
public key authentication. The convention when creating an account on
pony is to set a random password and write it to ~/password.)
