Whoooaaaaa... never actually tried x11 fowarding over ssh before... running Firefox on SDF's metaarray, but I'm seeing it as a window locally. This is crazy cool! I might need to set this up locally for a few things... why have I never looked into this more deeply before?

@amrowsell It's so fun. I used to run applications on my home computer from the office just for kicks

@amrowsell 'Cause you shouldn't have, you know there's a shiny new thing like wayland🤣

@amrowsell Major downside is that X protocol is not very efficient on network so forwarding can get very, very slow. Much easier to get going than vnc or nx tho.
