Request a personal web page space
Setup Thunderbird for Colby email
Change OSX default shell?
If a local user on the Mac: Applications->Utilities->netinfo->users->username find the user you want to alters shell, change and save.
(in 10.5 faster to do sudo dscl . -create /Users/username UserShell /bin/tcsh)
However, to accomplish this if you login to the colby domain on your mac, as an administrator (sudo) you will need to edit
and change the line
Now, go back and do the local user solution above as an admin.
Xsession off of a colby machine, when your off campus?
ssh -Y colby0.colby.edu, then ssh -X machinewithX, from within an X session on your Mac.

. Make sure that you install your favorite shell and ssh!.
Another Xserver on windows is Xming
