I wrote about this great drupal find http://drupaldump.com/drush-cutie-about-minute-install-full-instance-dr…
but what was not obvious is how to reuse this drupal installation. Once you close terminal window, server closes and it doesn't work. There is a command
drush cutie --use-existing
Which will use existing codebase, but also prompt you to DROP current DB in sites/default/files , it will ask you do you want to continue, you should say NO and then it will just use existing DB. You can also just run "drush cutie" it will do the same.
