Now that was one that took me a long time to work out.

ie: "They're free, get a new one" :) In fact the extra keys
(favourite 1, 2, 3, 4 ...) have been mapped to terminals of varying
types. Still I do use bg and friends a lot especially when doing
remote admin on machine in Canada!
Question on these same lines:
How do you get your terminal back to "normal" after cat'ing a binary
file by mistake and the character map gets all screwed up?
$ cat /usr/bin/*
ÿÿ: ; < ÿÿ> ÿÿ⎻ ÿÿÿÿÿÿ
ÿÿ$%&'ÿÿÿÿÿÿ+ÿÿÿÿ./012] ^ ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ
I know you can reset it with a pointy-click but what is going on here?
some wierd character map?
