iKog - the simple todo list

iKog - the simple todo list

So I am looking for a good to-to list manager, and I stumbled across ikog.  ikog stands for “It Keeps On Growing”, and it is a pretty nice todo manager which has been influenced by the GTD school of thought. Currently, I am using it for my daily todo manager, and using the python gtd tool for my long term list management.  Give it a whirl, you might like it!

Strayed from the path

Strayed from the path

In two ways…first, I have not updated the site in a while, and I
need to get back to updating it.

Second, because I have not been true to my cli roots. I have moved
from my default MUA of the last, oh, 8 years, and flirted with a GUI
MUA, thunderbird. It was pretty.
It was sexy. It let me see everything then and now. It tried to
seduce me into using a GUI for more…

But, then I got behind in my email, and it was taking longer and
longer to catch up. sigh Two days ago, I switched back, and now, I
am fully caught up on my inbox, and making headway on my actionable
items.

cli bug/issue/task tracking system?

cli bug/issue/task tracking system?

Fresh from freshmeat:

http://www.ditrack.org/

What is DITrack?

DITrack is a free, open source, lightweight, distributed issue (bug,
defect, ticket) tracking system using a [Subversion](http://subversion.tigris.org/) repository instead
of a backend database. It is written in Python and runs in UNIX
environment (*BSD, Linux, MacOS X).

The project is inspired by the idea of [Subissue](http://subissue.tigris.org/) issue tracking system.

However, while Subissue aims in merely replacing the traditional
database storage with Subversion repository, DITrack is a major
rethought of the issue tracking system paradigm. The main difference
is that instead of sticking to the centralized model (one database,
one web interface, one mail integration machinery), DITrack treats
underlying Subversion storage as a versioned distributed file system
which enables benefits of truly distributed operation mode.

Window Manager for tty?

Window Manager for tty?

The package screen is
something that has been around for a long time.

With screen, you can have many session running on on tty, and you can
switch to another session with out touching a mouse. With the proper
configuration, you can get notified if there is some change (like if
you have a IM client up) or if there is no output (say, if you are
watching a compile session).

You are in the zone working, and then you notice the time, and you
have to log out and go home. Is this a problem? No, with a simple
d, you can disconnect the screen session, log out, go home,
log back into that machine, and resume your session just where you
left off.

One of the other really feature is cut and paste between sessions.
The is very handy when adapting code (or articles) into a new file.
