Thanks dude.

Console Locking

I stumbled upon this today:

* app-misc/vlock
     Available versions: 1.3-r1 1.3-r2
     Istalled: none
     Description: A console screen locker

Pretty handy stuff. You can lock just the current console with vlock -c. That's quite basic. I liked the vlock -a option. It locks all the consoles. You can't even switch them using Alt+Ctrl+F* keys. Pretty handy.
