Ctrl+S on Putty

I have a habit of pressing Ctrl+S on things, unfortunately this also happens a lot when I’m trying to save stuff on Vi through putty.

If you press Ctrl+S on a putty window, the window would freeze and you can’t type anything. Ctrl+S does XOFF so while it accepts commands nothing is returned. To recover, press Ctrl+O
