For me, fun is taking a program, language, whatever and making it do things it's designer never envisioned it doing. It comes in handy when I'm asked to do something a little outside the norm as part of my job.

Regarding ulimit: 1) I end up running a few dozen processes that each normal use ~1% of RAM but need to on occasion use ~10%, just not all at the time time. 2) a significant fraction of the time the triggering process is "something random" and there are to many of them to find valid limits for.

How do you do that globally, I.e. not just for me?

comment Multi screen thin-client/dumb-terminal
Good to know. OTOH I seem to have been unclear. For starters; I used the term "thin client" for what you seem to be calling a "dumb terminal". I'll try and edit the question to clear up the rest.
