comment tmux: Page Up/Down in Cygwin
IIRC, there are three keys to munge in this manner, the one to put you into Copy-mode (I think that's what it's called), then the Page-up/Page-down keys.

comment tmux: Page Up/Down in Cygwin
I have the same issue. The only way I've found to get around it is to use a program like autohotkey (I think that's the name of it -- my computer is at work) to send the correct key sequence and bind that to some other key sequence, like Ctrl--/Ctrl-+. It used to work but stopped for some reason, and I never went back to figure it out. It could be that I simply don't remember the correct key sequence to trigger it...

Here's a slightly less dangerous listing command: lsof | grep "deleted" | awk '{print $2}' | uniq | sort | xargs ps -p

comment Resume term after ssh disconnect without multiplexer (screen/tmux)
It sounds like tmux, screen or byobi are just what you need. If you don't want all of those other features...don't use them. I don't know what annoying term effects you're seeing, but spend 30 minutes to fix them and then you have the exact right tool for the job. IMHO, YMMV.

comment Why doesn't tmux respond to shortcuts properly?
You could try to get rid of the escape-time; it didn't cause any problems with my tmux, but I'm not sure that it's needed and it's possible that it could be getting in the way, somehow.

comment Why doesn't tmux respond to shortcuts properly?
I'm using iTerm2, MacPorts' tmux & bash, but it shouldn't really matter; what you have should work regardless of bash vs. zsh and, in theory, Homebrew vs. MacPorts. I can only guess that there's something wrong with Homebrew's tmux...

comment How to get Thunderbird to work through HTTP proxy server?
@Hennes - true, not all HTTP proxies can handle the CONNECT command, and those that can need to be configured to allow it (and it can be restricted in a lot of ways, etc). My proxy at work does handle it and it's configured to allow just about anything through it. Why, then, it's there is a different question for a different time...

@RedGrittyBrick - yes, I tried that, but TB still seems to make no attempt to use the HTTP proxy for IMAP.

comment Terminal with session management and scrollback OS X
iTerm2 (code.google.com/p/iterm2) has some wacky built-in tmux support (code.google.com/p/iterm2/wiki/TmuxIntegration) -- maybe that will help? I use iTerm2, but not the built-in tmux; the built-in limitations were more cumbersome to me than the tmux "limitations" it was trying to overcome.

comment Why is there an auto-connect delay to a hidden wireless network - Ubuntu 9.10
A late addition to this thread. Although my script above works, I eventually stopped needing it because I eventually stopped the hidden SSID altogether, thanks to articles like this one, that convinced me that hidden SSIDs were a waste of time: howtogeek.com/howto/28653/…

comment Emacs opens files in a new frame when opened with “open -a”
I don't know a thing about OSX so I can't provide anything concrete. If I were to debug this, though, I would throw some syntax error into find-file and then set debug-on-error to t and check out the stack trace for some clue as to how Emacs is being invoked. Adding an error to find-file could be as simple as copying the function definition to the lisp scratch buffer and adding a call to error in it (e.g. (error "cause stack trace"). NEVER CHANGE THE SOURCE FILE FOR find-file -- always do this in a scratch bufer!

comment In Emacs how can I go back to the last buffer I was editing using ELisp?
Can you give a little context about what you're trying to do? There are a bunch of different ways to do what you want but they depend on the bigger picture...
