I definetely agree with Andrew Pollock's post: screen rocks my world!

I and my coworker coredump always have screen sessions running on the servers we administer together, and are always looking at logs and fixing problems together. This was also how we hacked the scripts that we used to convert all our users' mbox-based mailboxes to maildir some months ago when we fixed the mail server of the Ministry

I'm simply unable to imagine myself living in a world without screen.

About the vote... my ballot:

[ 6 ] Choice 1: Jonathan Walther 
[ 3 ] Choice 2: Matthew Garrett 
[ 2 ] Choice 3: Branden Robinson 
[ 1 ] Choice 4: Anthony Towns 
[ 4 ] Choice 5: Angus Lees 
[ 2 ] Choice 6: Andreas Schuldei
[ 5 ] Choice 7: None Of The Above

I was quite surprised by Anthony Towns running for the job this year. Although I voted for Branden twice now I decided Anthony Towns seems to be the one with the most concrete proposals on how to get Debian back to being a sane environment which is fun to work on. I still trust Branden would do lots of good on this matter, too, if elected. I decided to give the same trust to Andreas, too... while I think he'd not be as tough in some respects as Branden would I think he'd get results by using other strategies.

I don't know Angus a lot but he seemed to be sane enough to be ranked 4. Jonathan on the other hand has demonstrated that he does not deserve to be trusted and that he is able to completely change his "image" and opinions depending on convenience. I don't want someone like him as a DPL, ever.
