Who here has used MOSH (Mobile Shell) as a replacment for SSH in places where you might have crappy connection or need to switch between different connections without losing your session? 

No I don't want this to become a place where people begin a flame ware about screen vs. tmux, that's another topic for another day.  ... but for the record tmux ftw!
rm -rf /bin/laden

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

Ive never heard of that one before, but I also dont try to ssh into places either. The only time I do is when Im in vm's. What would you use that for?
Also...terminator for the win!!
The quieter you become, the more you are unlikely to sound stupid.

haha, man I use tmux inside of terminator... You'd use it for things like I mentioned, if you're moving between connections or if you're on a cruddy connection or cruddy vpn or something that keeps dropping your packets then it'll allow for it to stay connected.

I am using it to SSH into a computer that is nearly out of range of WiFI so I got a lot of disconnects...
mosh works fine, altough it takes some time due to the connection
I'd like to have Augmentations.

It's also pretty handy when working thru a spotty cellular modem module on a Pi.  Depending on reception you need something more forgiving than standard SSH
