I like OpenBSD. Minus about 2 tiny details, it really is (IMHO) the most superior OS on the planet. Sure, I'm a fanboy, I admit it freely =)

Ok, so I have a dual-head setup at work (running OpenBSD-4.6), and I am usually ssh'd into dozens of machines at a time. My desktop tends to look like a fuster-cluck of aterms.

So I discovered a cool little trick with konsole. Using dcop, you can open new terminals as a new session (tab) in an existing konsole window and then send commands to said sessions (and even rename the sessions to match what commands you sent to it).

But, there's only one problem. I'm running...
