Phoebe in Wonderland

Great movie! And it's one of the rare movies that it satisfies the Bechdel Test.

Move the cursor from the command line in fvwm using FvwmCommand

In the holodeck, I sometimes forget to move the mouse pointer to the corner of the screen before I unplug the keyboard. Here's how to do it remotely if you use fvwm (or fvwm2) as your window manager:

$ ssh whatever

$ export DISPLAY=:0.0

$ FvwmCommand 'CursorMove -100 -100'

Note that the quotes are important; otherwise it gets confused about the -.
