comment What is the maximum compression ratio of gzip?
Wikipedia says 42.zip is "containing five layers of nested zip files in sets of 16", so that is not a valid example for decompression (only for recursive decompression).

comment Persistent PuTTY sessions for multiple windows
Thanks. I heard about mosh, but as I understand it basically replaces SSH with its own protocol which is probably not mature enough for serious use.

That completely disables automatic updates. Not a good idea.

comment How to Minimize Skype to Windows 7 System Tray (Notification Area)
Actually this is not a duplicate: the solution offered to the other question removes Skype from the taskbar, but it does not appear in the system tray either.

comment Persistent PuTTY sessions for multiple windows
@mnmnc: automatically reissuing commands I used sounds scary, and anyway, doesn't solve the problem of getting the same session back in the same window. If I just want to get back one of the existing sessions randomly, I can probably achieve that by calling screen with the right parameters in .bashrc.

comment Persistent PuTTY sessions for multiple windows
Not really a network issue, for example sessions drop when I take the laptop with me for a meeting and it has no connection while I am moving between access points. The connection dropping only happens in expected cases, and most of my applications just auto-reconnect; I want to set up the same for PuTTY.

comment Persistent PuTTY sessions for multiple windows
As for multi-windows in screen, I am used to the Windows way of manipulating windows and don't want to learn a completely different approach just because of this. And in general, text-based window emulation is a big help when you are on a dumb terminal, but a poor replacement for real windows (e.g. I use dual monitors, I can't take advantage of that with screen multi-windows). I also have some window-related convenience settings (e.g. blink window name on toolbar when a long task is done) which I would have to solve in a different way.

comment Persistent PuTTY sessions for multiple windows
The different users are not really necessary, I can have several different PuTTY configs for the same user, with different environment variables. But I am hoping for a nicer solution where PuTTY somehow passes an identifier to the shell (its a Windows process ID, for example), and I can use that as the name for a names screen session. That way I do not have to pollute my PuTTY host list, and do not have to think which user/config to use if I need a new window.
