1. This hack ensures that when you log on to a server/pc it will execute a screen session which minimizes the risks of you losing your work in case of network disruptions . Just copy command to your bashrc file and source it.
    #Best used when you have to work on a different server via ssh.

    [sourcecode language="bash"]if [ "$TERM" != "screen" ]; then
    screen -xRR

  2. This hack enables mouse scrolling and scrollbar history scrolling. Just copy command to your ~/.screenrc file and restart your shell.

    [sourcecode language="bash"]
    # Enable mouse scrolling and scroll bar history scrolling
    defscrollback 5000
    termcapinfo xterm* ti@:te@

  3. Ever gotten to a point where, you can't remember a certain command you executed and when you try to grep it from history it suddenly disappeared well, this hack fixes that. Copy and paste following codes to ~/.bashrc and source it.
    It creates a file named 'command_log' and logs all executed commands as well as timestamp. Nifty!! very Nifty
    [sourcecode language="bash"]
    # log every command typed and when
    if [ -n "${BASH_VERSION}" ]; then
    trap "caller >/dev/null || \
    printf '%s\\n' \"\$(date '+%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S%z')\
    \$(tty) \${BASH_COMMAND}\" 2>/dev/null >>~/.command_log" DEBUG
