I had an upper hand in this quick assignment! I had registered in Intro to Unix last semester and this one of the very first things Darren taught. I ended up deciding to drop the class simply early in the semester due to an overwhelming course load. Of course I still managed to find a way to mess up while logging into the weechat server this time but that’s just something I do haha. I accidentally deleted my oftc server that was already created for me in attempts to create a new one DOH!
I’m actually surprised Darren did not incorporate this segment into the class as it would probably cut down on the amount of emails he receives, especially from me, and allows the students to work out the kinks of their assignments together. Not only that, but with that addition of a tmux connection, which I love by the way, the weechat channel becomes somewhat of a group message that you can be connected to at all times. I’d have to put the weechat channel tmux as one of the subjects I find most interesting in this class, along with scripting.
I have a question to anyone that reads this and that would be:
What other programs is having a tmux useful for?
I think it is interesting but can’t seem to think of anything, being the new unix user that I am, that I would need to keep running at all times like weechat. I look forward to any responses.
