Sure, but that would still leave my machines vulnerable to script 
kiddies. Since I rarely move files between my laptop and my server, 
the four-step process is not a big deal. If I did it more often, I'd 
probably cron up a script on the intermediate machine to move (and 
delete) the files for me.
