This script will only work when CSIF's load average webpage is working (it goes down more often than I'd like).

#!/bin/bash 

CONNECTHOST=$(curl -s http://wwwcsif.cs.ucdavis.edu/load.html | egrep ssh | head -n 1 | /usr/bin/sed -E -e 's/<\/?TD>//g' -e 's/<A.*:\/\///' -e 's/>.*>//g')

ssh [email protected]$CONNECTHOST

exit 0

Replace "username" with your CSIF username, of course. Add an -X or -Y to the SSH line, as appropriate, if you wish to do X11 tunneling.
