Ctrl-S in a linux shell

When using vi to edit documents on linux systems from time to time I press Ctrl-S to save my changes – damn Windows shortcuts ;-) This kind of freezes the shell because it locks the terminal output.

If this happens to you press Ctrl-Q which causes the shell to resume terminal output. See this blog for more linux terminal shortcuts.
