Quicker SSH sessions with Console and Gnome Do

Using SSH is quick to manage your webspace.  It is much faster that FTP depending on the task.  I learned today that in Linux you can store your SSH connection in a the file "~/.ssh/config" using the following format.

Host myhost1
User username1
Port 8322
HostName machine.example1.com 

Once you've edited and saved this file with your SSH configuration settings you can start ssh sessions from the command like so.

ssh myhost1

On top of that I found that Gnome Do, one of my favorite Linux apps, parses my ~/.ssh/config file so that I can start ssh sessions from Gnome Do! For more information on this check out this post on the Gnome Do site.
