"How should I change which port sshd listens on in Mac OS X 10.3 Panther? If I want to start sshd manually, (ie not via the Sharing GUI) it will run as a daemon and use it's configuration file as expected. But if I check the "Remote Login" box in the Sharing panel in System Preferences on a Mac OS X computer, I can enable the built in OpenSSH server."

Ambivalent Right (noun):

A political group primarily leaning Republican but holding mixed or moderate views on certain social issues, immigration, and foreign policy.

Characterized by alignment with core conservative values on government size, regulation, and economics, while showing more progressive stances on topics like abortion and same-sex marriage.

Often younger and more ethnically diverse than other GOP groups, the Ambivalent Right expresses dissatisfaction with both major political parties, reflecting a complex blend of conservatism with nuanced social views.
I live in the Deep South, but I voted purple on the ballot sheet. I want small government and support abortion for medical purposes. I’m conservative, but agree with some Democrat ideologies. I suppose this makes me ambivalent right.
