nah, i'm sure ken connects to linux.ie with ssh. no one would type
the root password in plaintext, that would be silly.

yeah, you could even make the tld root. then you could have www.root,
win95.root, linux.root, etc... although you could follow a naming
scheme of tuberous veggies like carrot.root, turnip.root, beet.root,
and so on. various holy wars and extreme confusion can result from a
route.root address. heck your home email address could be root at root.root
or to keep thinks simple you could have an mx record so home users could
just type root at root.
the fun would just be endless.
