GNU Screen

I've gotten so set in certain ways, that my productivity takes a severe hit if tiny things are varied. One of those things in how I use GNU screen.

My windows:

  1. Source code control and ancillary daemon manipulation (e.g. memcached).

  2. Code interaction - mostly ack (--thppt); some configuration edits; almost no code edits (that's why God made emacs.

  3. REPL / script/console - for whatever reason, I find this easier to do in the console than in Emacs

  4. Interactive DB session

  5. Logging - usually a tail -f on a log file or two
I am not sure how I settled on this particular configuration, but, as I said, I almost can't function without it.
