You run your web server as a non-privileged user, but not your
browser -- and you're more likely to understand your web server
than your web browser.  Should we each have a joe and a joe_browser
account?

Very paranoialicious sshd suggestion from Jim Dennis...run it
directly from inittab to restart it if the dreaded OOM killer on
a seriously troubled system kills it:

Run a second static, sashroot-only sshd this way and protect yourself
from other trouble with your main sshd too.
