Graphics, User Interfaces Sometimes, you wake up in the morning, check your RSS feeds, and you know you just hit the jackpot. From the AT&T archives comes a video and description of Blit, a UNIX graphical user interface from 1982, on a 800x1024 portrait display. It employs a three button mouse, right-click context menus, multiple windows, and lots, lots more. It was developed at Bell Labs, and is yet another case that illustrates how the technology industry doesn't work in a vacuum.

I used to have a number of terminal windows open until a guru noticed that and told me the secret of "screen".

This was great, now I only had one terminal in which I had 9 or so "screens", detach my session, go home, reattach.

Yeah, I know how to use screen. Like I said, I use Tmux - which is based upon screen's code but developed into something much more advanced. ;)
