When using denyhosts, you'll want to keep your IP's in hosts.allow so even if you're "banned" you can still get access. :-)

Just one other thing: if you use a script, you need to be careful you
don't accidentally ban your own IP (by entering a wrong password too
many times) when accessing a remote server. :/
