tmux is a shiny alternative that's probably worth looking into. I can't give much of a review, though, since it's been years since I used such programs heavily.

Re: How to repair a floppy disk? - OT

The KyroFlux suggestion was only for 400K/800K disks -- for a standard floppy, it may be no better than the drive you already have. If you mean you're using a sector editor on the physical disk, I'll repeat my suggestion of imaging the disks first. There's no risk of further data loss if you work wi...

Re: MinkoChess v1.3 = 2900 Elo....

The only problem is that his code doesn't compile (problem in the makefile with pthread). I'll see if there's an easy fix for it.
