i want to be able to walk away from my system for a few minutes w/o
having to switch among all virtual terminals and run lock on all of
actually, being able to lock all virtual terminals i'm logged into
would be fine w/ me -- i just don't want to have to run lock on all of
them separately by hand.
may be there's some programmatic way to switch among all virtual
terminals i'm logged into and run lock on all of them? of course, i'd
want the unlocking of those virtual terminals to happen w/o having to
manually unlock them all as well.
anyway, i hope to actual come up w/ some code to do something more
appropriate than disable the alt key temporarily ;-)
