If using bash, a better idea is:
plasma & disown

...otherwise bash likes to SIGHUP background tasks when you exit the 
shell. I'm not sure if plasma cares, but it's good practice in general. 
(I launch things from shells so much I have a "detach" script which 
forks a process in the background with fd's o-2 redirected to /dev/null 
and disowns it. If you have debug enabled, &>/dev/null is also a good 
idea unless you want that shell to become cluttered with chatter :-).)

Person A: It's an ISO standard.
Person B: ...And that means what?
