So you need a calendar? So, one of the things we have been using computers for is to keep track of our lives. And this means a scheduling or calendaring tool. Some tools out there do this fine, and some do it very well.

Command-Line blog posts So, it only seems fitting that I should talk about a command-line interface to posting on this blog. No, I do not mean using links or the like, but a way to post from the command line. So, this post is being typed up in vim on my Fedora 8 laptop.

Currently, I am using it for my daily todo manager, and using the python gtd tool for my long term list management.
