Break out of ssh after it locks
Every time I suspend my laptop (by closing the lid) I inevitably have at least one terminal with an ssh session open to a remote host that ends up freezing that terminal on unsuspend. I usually just close that terminal window/tab and start a new one in it's place but it annoyed me because it didn't feel right.

This post strikes me as right on. When I started coding for my site, I implemented comments the way you might for any old web programming tutorial. I’d receive a mention, parse out the content, and stick it in a database table.
