[lcdproc] Not on topic but useful : splitvt and curses driver

If like me you don't have all the time an access to your lcd screen, you
can use splitvt (http://www.devolution.com/~slouken/projects/splitvt) to
display the curses lcd driver at the top
of the terminal and have a shell at the bottom.

Here is my .splitvtrc file (to put in $HOME). Just run "splitvt" and it
will get its parameters from this file. Once it's started, the active
screen is not the shell so just hit <ctrl-W> to activate the bottom
screen. To quit splitvt, type "<ctrl-o> q" (or enter "exit" several

Hope this can save you time if you only have one screen to display
everything (ssh, telnet...).
