If you want to log _extended_ terminal activity, don't overlook the
/usr/bin/script utility, which opens a new subshell, all of whose screen
output gets logged from that point forward to an ASCII file, default
name "typescript".  When you're done, typing Ctrl-D or "exit" closes the
subshell (and thus terminates logging).
