I vote this is spam.
Why do you have to tell people about screen in the support forum?

Calm down -- it was posted in the wrong place, but "spam" is usually advertising something, whereas this is just expressing enthusiasm for an application that many people here use.

The Beginners Forum is tagged as "The perfect starting place to find out more about computers, Linux and Ubuntu." I figured for someone who hadn't heard of the program before they would be learning something, that's why I posted it there.

Not that it matters much to me that it's here instead.

Yeah, but it's for questions rather than for tips or suggestions -- combining the two would make it even more chaotic than it already is. Like you say, though, it's not a big deal, and it's in the right place now.

That makes sense I can understand that :) It is kinda crazy in there.

Anyway. How long have you been using screen?

Eh, I use it when I don't have X, but otherwise I just have a few xterms open.
