Great show

A great show. Can you send in a screen shot of the finished product please.

Also a general introduction/series on Screen and tmux etc would be great.

Thanks for this.

Thank you.

This was an excellent show!

I have been looking (or just not aware that I should have been) for something like screen.

I really like this. Thank you.
