Having a shell account isn't everything you thought it would be is it. There really isn't much to do. Some accounts you can check your email, but the one I gave you doesn't have an email account. if you go to the /bin directory those are the commands you can use. You can also do some things from the /usr/bin directory. One thing you could do is write your own shell scripts.
In your home directory(/home/ammon) type mkdir bin. You will have to learn how to use vi if you want to make the scripts from the account, or you could just write them in notepad and use your ftp account. If you don't know how to use it pm me. Here is good site on shell scripts: http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/linuxcommand.....html#contents
you will have to put the scripts in the bin directory you made and do a chmod on them, here's how: let's say the file was hello
chmod 755 hello
you must be in the directory with the file hello in it for this to work. Also, you need to make sure and put them in your /home/ammon/bin directory because otherwise they won't be in your path. Try typing echo $PATH at the command prompt to see your path.
You can also type echo $SHELL to see the current shell type you are using such as sh or bash.
don't save your script with any file extension, and if it doesn't work try a .bin extension.
Have fun and play nice.

If you write any usefull scripts let me know so I can use them.
I have done up to where you make an html page on that web site with the scripts. It's pretty neat, even though that's just the beginning of what you can do with a shell script. Does anyone else have some better links on shell scripts with maybe some more advanced stuff.

Hey ammon, I wrote you a simple script. Next time you go to your account type hello then hit enter. That should run the script. To view the contents of the script go into the /home/ammon/bin directory and type:
That should show you the text within the file. Hope to see some scripts from you soon.
