{This entire concept is in no way, shape or form my original idea. I did want to write realistic fiction some time in my life, but this story is based on an episode of The Middle, season six, episode 2, 'The Lonliest Locker.' Some of the gist is the same as the episode portrays Sue and Brad's play, but I feel like there should be more shown, and perhaps in writing rather than theater... still, it really pains me to no end to even think of saying that I hope you enjoy this. Though I mainly do write for the entertainment of my readers, this is different. So what do I say to you guys, then? I guess all I can say is that I hope that you can connect to the story, and can use it to reach out to whoever is the person in the Lonliest Locker. All parts are at ssh all results (ssh stands for Sue Sue Heck, the daughter) and will switch points of view between Skylar and Savanna. Thank you.}<p>I lookdd out the back window, gazing on as Dallas slowly but surely grew smaller, finally fading into the Texas horizon. This is real. I was really moving. It felt like that bittersweet ending to a movie, with the hero riding off into the sunset on his tall, regal steed. It always hurt to see that, but it hurt more to have it happen to me.<p>I didn't know we were moving, not until a week ago. Jade, Lily, Skye, Ivy, ad Cliff were all doing their extracurricular activities down by the schoolgrounds, and my parents were at work, leaving me all alone. They usually let me on the computer, though, and I was eager to see if my best friend, Arya, had emailed me. But as I clicked into the email site, I noticed something different. In the top right corner, the area that should have said 'log in' had the name Ciera Kole in its place. Mom never left her email logged in, let alone unattended. Neither would Dad. Something was up. I knew it was wrong, but I clicked into the inbox.<p>To: Ciera Kole<p>From: Janelle Este<p>Subject: re: Mental Moves<p>Hey, Ciera. It seems that there is a house available for you guys in KC. It's a nice one, and affordable, too. It's also just down the street from the nearest mental health facility, which will really help Savanna in every way possible. Here is the link to the real estate site, please get back to me on your opinions. Janelle.<p>I copied that entire conversation, logging out of Mom's account and into mine. I pasted the conversation into an email and sent it to myself, determined to catch someone in the act. Moving? To Kansas City? A mental health facility? To help me? I'm not that unstable. In fact, I'm probably more stable than Skye, Ivy, and Cliff combined, and they are apparently perfectly stable college students. Well, Cliff is a perfectly stable college graduate. And Lily and Jade have used me as a reference point for stability. Why would we need to move near a mental facility two states up for me?<p>"Avery, Arya, you two need to listen to me. You guys see this paper here?" The twins were utterly confused. Just then, though, the school bell rang, dismissing us. I ran out o the parking lot, and found my parents in the minivan in the parking lot. Skye sat in the driver's seat of a vehicle next to it. I looked on the side of the vehicle, curious. It was a moving truck.<p>I pulled open te van's skyroof thing, intent on looking at the stars. "Savanna, honey, we're not going to be able to see stars tonight, you know." I nodded. The street lights were blinding. What was worse, though, was when we pulled into a driveway right then.

If you're a sys admin or do anything with SSH this is the book to get. It goes through very thorough and applicable explanations and examples for how to use OpenSSH to its fullest. I like that it covers a variety of platforms and keeps things simple so that users of all skill levels can do some very advanced things.
