In a word: networks.
I'm sending this mail from a remote SSH session into my home SMTP server
from where I am physically, some 100 km away. My MUA session stays
running _on_ the SMTP host, 24x7, running under GNU screen. Ditto
numerous other tasks that need to stay loaded for ongoing operations.
Wherever I go, I just ssh in, do "screen -r -d", and I'm instantly
reconnected to whatever work was in process last time I detached and hit
If I didn't have a screen session running, my MUA session would
terminate whenever SSH dropped for any reason, or whenever I logged out.
