Terminator Comments

Correction! Project very much alive and awesome.

Positive Comment by gerrywastaken
about Terminator and Guake terminal Jul 2012

I just downloaded it today and I'm amazed by how capable it is when compared to others like Guake.

If you're a ZSH user and running Guake or Gnome-Terminal just try the following command:

for code in {0..255}; do echo -e "\e[38;05;${code}m $code: Test"; done

Every single instance of "Test" should be in a different color and that's not the only thing you're missing out on: http://www.webupd8.org/2011/09/terminator-multiple-terminals-in-same.html
