crotchety
adj - subject to whims, crankiness, or ill temper

I use Gentoo Linux both at home and at work. Every so often I hit some snag and I'd like to detail the fix here both for my benefit and to possibly help anyone else having a similar issue.

VNC-ish CLI

This isn't really Gentoo-specific, but it's a nice trick that you could use to share an ssh session with someone. It works like VNC where both people have full control over the session at the same time.

You need to have GNU screen installed:
emerge -av app-misc/screen

Start a screen session using:
screen -S

Have the other person start screen using:
screen -x
