comment How can I automatically update the title in an xterm running screen?
This works fine with screen 4.00.02 + tcsh 6.12.00. This assumes you have the screen hardstatus variable set appropriately and termcap/terminfo supports hs|ts|fs|ds.

Try using mintty with a $TERM value of either vt100 or xterm instead.

What is your version of Cygwin and VIM? Those commands as given work fine for Cygwin 1.7.9-1 + Vim 7.3 running within mintty.

You can further condense the check into a single date command if you want, if [ $( date +'%u:%H' ) = "7:16" ];

comment How do I kill a screen if I know the name of it?
only reason why I can't see this working is if you have more than 1 screen session named foo, use screen -list to get a list of current running sessions.
