then do work. finally when you need to disconnect, go home, go to
a different system, etc just press C-aC-d to detach. then when you get to
where you're going reconnect to the system and reun screen -r. it was
great at uni, and i also find it useful if i'm working on something
on a machine at work because i can just disconnect in the evening and
reconnect in the morning (since my laptop doesn't stay at work).
