Some (not so many) handy aliases

Under my Debian Linux, when I use screen, I always get some keymap/TERM setting problems, for example, the backspace key never work.

But if I set TERM to "vt100" before launch screen, it's OK, so this alias can resolve the problem:

alias screen='env TERM=vt100 screen'

For the poor network, I always need a multi-thread http downloader. Firefox has a extension DownThemAll!, but after I finish surfing websites (but didn't finish downloading yet), I used to press Command+Q to quit Firefox, and the download was interrupted. lftp has a built-in downloader: pget, so use pget is a good idea:

alias pget="lftp -c pget"

Put the codes into your bashrc file, and restart your terminal, it's done.

My backspace key still does not work. Tried setting the value of TERM to cygwin, xterm, vt100 but nothing works.
