Could you please supply some detailed information on how this
command works? I like what it does, but I also like to know what I am doing ;-)

If you look at the output of 'w' you can see that it lists all of the users currently logged in. This command uses 'fuser' to kick all but the first entry. Adding watch to the beginning of this command makes it run every two seconds, thus hording the access to the server to just you.
