Suppose I had a friend who had a Linux connected to the internet and I got 
him to set me up a username. As long as his machine didn't do any logging 
[and he pretended not to know of anyone using this account] would I - using 
sssh to connect] be traceable.

The real question at that point is - "If the cops come banging on your friend's
door and wave warrants and subpoenas and cattle prods in his face, how quickly
will he fold?"

Either he caves or he doesn't.  If he caves, you're not anonymous anymore. If he
doesn't, you're a moral sleezeball for making him take the heat when he's the sort
of friend that would take the heat for you.
