The best GNU screen “taskbar” you’ve used/seen?


As some of you may know, screen offers an ability to have a "taskbar"-like bar that is always present and helps navigating around windows, etc. I find this bar irreplaceable.

What is the best configuration you've seen or one that you think is the most optimal/useful?

Here is mine:

hardstatus alwayslastline "%{b kw}%H %{r}%1` %{w}| %{g}%c %{w}| %{y}%d.%m.%Y %{w}| %{g}%l %{w}| %{-b kw}%u %-Lw%{= rW}%50> %n%f %t %{-}%+Lw%<"

host | time | date | load average | obligatory window

I am unable to remember where I got this hardstatus or if I adapt it from an existing one.
