Speaking UNIX: Stayin’ alive with Screen

It’s been a long while since I’ve used a Unix server where I’ve had to submit jobs which persist between logging in, but these links have a great overview of the commands and options for using ‘screen’ to maintain your remote session.  I’ve been using my super light laptop to do do stuff, so it makes a lot more sense to use it as a dumb terminal which can operate physically lots of different places, as long as I have access to a powerful server backend.
