PuTTY with Cygwin

PuTTYCyg allows you to use PuTTY as your Cygwin console instead of the regular old shoddy windows console.

It's really great, but I was kind of confused about how to set it up at first. Apparently, you have to make a new session with hostname "-" (without the quotes) and choose "cygwin" as the protocol, then you save it as yourusername@localhost. Load that session and enjoy.
