alias bbterm='aterm  -fn -adobe-courier-medium-r-normal--18-180-75-75-m-110-iso8859-1'

alias naterm='aterm  -fn "-lfp-gamow-medium-r-normal--9-90-75-75-c-90-iso8859-1"'
alias saterm='aterm  -fn -adobe-courier-medium-r-normal--8-80-75-75-m-50-iso8859-1'

(huge font aliasas are good when you need to show other people how to do stuff)
