I like to spend time with my lovely wife, our two beautiful daughters, and our dog. I'm also a fan of geek humor, and I've been known to flip out and write code… elegant code, if I'm really lucky.

comment How can I close a terminal without killing its children (without running `screen` first)?
@Mikel that combined with my failure to find any docs makes me think I just imagined that. The Solaris thing was real, though.

@Mikel Before I learned to stop worrying and love the tmux, I used the -p option on a Solaris box. I also have vague memories of doing it on a mongrel CentOS box (possibly zsh has a builtin that supports it?), but I can't find any docs on that.

@valya Glad you found a solution. Just to be clear, though, nohup does work on a running process by using the -p option (if available).

comment Why root's default shell is configured differently with other normal user account's default shell?
@Gilles Right. I chose ksh as root's shell on my NetBSD VPS. I was just repeating the "official" explanation. Frankly, csh is a big reason I like having toor around: I much prefer bash or zsh myself.

@jae portage and Gentoo's rc system are both BSDish. There may be other similarities, but those are the specifics I had in mind.
