Yeah, I knew this. The telnet protocol also involves doing some negotions
of options like echo, terminal type, etc. I actually looked at the telnet
lib, and forgot about it, thanks for reminding me. :o)

I looked, and the problem that I've seen isn't the lack of clients, but
the lack of X based clients which is what I am looking to create. There
are some very nice console based ones like TinyFugue, but I just haven't
seen one with all the features I want fo X.

Thanks for the tip, I kind of figured this was the wrong way to do things
and had planned to change it. As I said in my original post, this is my
first attempt at any type of Python code and therefore is ugly. I do
appreciate you suggestions however.
