Back to the Future: Using a DEC VT220 from 1983
===============================================

I bought an actual serial terminal. It is many years older than I am, and can display 24 lines by 80 (or 132) colums of text.

My workflow is quite terminal centric: Work for Uni is done with vim over ssh, emails are read with mutt, and ncmpcpp provides the front end to my music. If it weren’t for the Internet, I’d ditch the display server without batting an eye.
