I find that using the scrollback buffers from tmux is a lot nicer than
wrestling with my terminal's scrollback buffer. At least then I can
browse the buffer with vi keys and search it using '/' or '?'. The
added bonus is copy-and-paste support (which is sometimes useful).

Thats just me though, perhaps the minimalists around here scoff at using
tmux or screen. :D
