thanks jof,

Jake -- if you want a user account on pony, the process is simple --

1) add your ssh key to your noisebridge wiki user page (
https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/User:Jerkey see my page for ref:
https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/User:miloh )

2) find someone from the ops group (email the rack list) to create a user
account for you on pony.
