What Do I Use Revisited

A long time ago, I have a blog called something living at http://cli.duckland.org. The first article on it was called What Do I Use? which listed some of the software I used on a daily basis. I thought it would be worth revisiting.

Oddly enough, I am still using a lot of the same or very similar stuff:

Past Preset Comments
bash - my shell of choice Still Bash Why change something that works
screen - a shell multiplexer and more tmux So much better
mutt-ng - a mua on steroids mutt Mainstream finally caught up
centericq - IM. How do you stay in touch? nothing CLI chat is mainly dead, sadly
snownews - an RSS feed reader newsboat Feed readers are still a thing
calcurse - a calendar/todo manger Sadly, Google Calendar I know
bashblogger - the CMS for this site Hugo Much better solution, and maintained

Now, I know my computing needs are different from many, and my tool set reflect the facts that I have been in system administration or systems engineering for 30+ years (dang, I am getting old), but I find it interesting that I am still using the basically the same tools 13+ years later.
