Sounds fair!

I was/am really interested in NX specifically because it proxies the  
X11 protocol, and allows one to disconnect a session, and then later  
reconnect to it.  I use Screen all the time for that very purpose --  
I'm working at a client site on some computer, ssh'd in to my screen  
session, then disconnect, and later pick up the same session from the  
computer at my desk, etc.

That way, I leave all my connections to my servers, log windows,  
network stats all open in one session, and just connect to my  
environment as I need it.

I want NX because it allows the same thing, except not just with text,  
and without quite the same impact as traditional screen sharing  

Thanks for letting me know that it's really can work -- I'm looking  
forward to giving it another shot.

	All the Best,
