Based on http://www.rackaid.com/resources/tips/linux-screen.cfm
A good reminder :)
At the prompt, type "screen", then...
Ctrl + A ? : help Ctrl + A C : create a screen session Ctrl + A N : switch to the next session Ctrl + A P : switch to the previous session Ctrl + A K or exit : exit session Ctrl + A D : detach session screen -r session : re-attach to a detached session Ctrl + A M : look for activity within the screen session Ctrl + A _ : look for silence within the screen session Ctrl + A Esc : allows to scroll back in the buffer
Edit ~/.screenrc :
caption always "Screen %n - %d/%m/%y (%c)"
It will add a status line showing in which screen session you're working plus the date and time
