Good good! :)

I don't think it has been mentioned yet but one other thing that will
make your life a bit easier is dyndns so that then you can just do

   ssh -p 2234 admindood at waggakids.selfip.com

This is presuming that like most ADSL users they do not have a static
IP. As for vnc, I use this all the time in a very similar situation to
what you describe and it works fine. Of course it wont help you when
you do something like a distro upgrade much but that is a hurdle you
will have to cross when you get to it! ..
