Nice Bash tips. I like the etckeeper explanation as it is (it's also a nice
tip I had not heard of).
I think some tips on screen would be good. It took me forever to figure out
that things like C-a X, ^a x or even Ctl-a x meant hold and release ctl and
"a" then press "x". Some useful commands to point out would be create
window, next window, previous window, disconnect, kill window, and help (c,
n, p, d, k, and ?) in addition to the commands 'screen -r', 'screen -rd',
and 'screen -ls'.
