1) It sounds like you want to talk to your boss or your professor, 2) it sounds like maybe root privileges should be revoked for all uses, and 3) it sounds like you want to take frequent backups ;)

Unfortunately, "screen" probably won't help the OP if he wants to kill his terminal session. I believe "nohup" is the command he's looking for. IMHO...

Absolutely correct :). You know about the "&" part (to run the program in the background). "nohup" keeps your program from getting killed when you log off your terminal session. Finally, you might also wish to redirect output to a file you can read later: nohup mpirun -np 20 ./a 200 1000000 2>&1 mylog.txt &

comment How can I fix a computer that is infested with malware and is extremely unresponsive?
@nerdwaller - a year or so ago I had a client with a similar problem (some stupid "Optimize your PC" malware got in and brought the PC to it's knees). The PC had a fully up-to-date version of Norton A/V. Norton did nothing to protect the PC, and nothing to fix it. MalwareBytes, however, worked like a charm. Malwarebytes is definitely a good recommendation!

comment How to disable jusched.exe on Windows 7 64-bit?
\Program files*\java\..\bin\javacpl works if you only have one version of the JRE, and can find it easily. Otherwise, run msconfig and uncheck "Java Updates" from the [Startup] tab.

comment bash screen title usage (screen -t “something”)
One other suggestion: ls -laR /var/run/screen/ PS: I thought "screen -ls" did list the titles. Sorry. I agree with you about "illogical" ;). Please let us know if the "ls /var/run/screen" works for you.

@user1076371: "telnet is working"?!? What about the "connection refused"?????? Please follow Roman Newaza's advice (which is good advice!), and please look at my link (of which "install telnetd" is a part).

comment What's the difference between “su” with and without hyphen?
Those two things are the files that set the user environment :) Not executing them means keeping your original environment. Executing them (by using "-") means making your environment the same as the user you're "su'ing" to. Using the hyphen is usually what you want - I use "-" habitually whenever I "su".
