Great episode! Especially liked the rundown of CLI apps. Got CenterIM running on my servers now. Thanks.

CLI word processing

I've been trying out that CLI word processor, wordgrinder. This is really pretty cool. Once I figured out that you had to use the native .wg format to start out with and then convert it over to odt or HTML, it worked great. I like how it does a nice clean HTML conversion without any styling at all. You've got very basic paragraph styles for headings and quotations, couple of basic character formatting options, it's just right. :-) Thanks for the tip.

Me too

I also find myself ssh'd into my rpi as my daily driver--glad to know I'm not alone. I loved the list of apps and have saved it for a re-listen. Inspiring.
