@bonzoesc @zpojqwfejwfhiunz @thegibson That’s about all I know how to do. Edit text and save and quit. That small amount of knowledge saved my ass when I messed up a config file and my computer wouldn’t start up. I was able to safe mode and cd over to the file and open and edit in VIM. Restarted and everything was good again.

I should learn more.

@garrett @bonzoesc @zpojqwfejwfhiunz @TheGibson On a new system you always install screen, then run the other installs within screen.

@CharredStencil I didn't know what screen was until just now but it looks highly useful. Thanks! I'm very new to Linux.

@garrett @CharredStencil @zpojqwfejwfhiunz @thegibson I'd low-key recommend also checking out `tumx`, which is screen with a few new features (iTerm 2 integration)

@CharredStencil haha wow, it got autocorrected to "tux" and I inadequately fixed it, thanks for pointing that out :)
