1 - Log in using your account.
2 - Type 'screen'. That will start a new screen session. A screen
session looks exactly like any other shell session.
3 - Do whathever you do to start the process you need to run.
4 - Type CTRL-A D to 'detach' the screen session.
5 - Log out and go home, your process is still running.
6 - When you return you just log in using your account (not necesarily
on the same terminal)
7 - Type 'screen -r'. That will attach your screen session to the
terminal you are on. Now you have access to the results of the process.
