Throw it into screen. This way she can detach the virtual terminal, log out
from the terminal, login somewhere else, some other time, and reattach the
virtual terminal to interact with the app again. The app will continue to run
just fine in that virtual terminal when she is away.
I used this for my Half-Life servers, works perfectly.
