What we really need is more things available on the command line, like Twitter. Here it is, written in Python. You can get it via pip or easyinstall if you have either of those installed. Pretty easy to set up, just have to register it with your account, then you can stream tweets to the command line. Because…. tmux.
tmux and screen. Sometimes more screen as well. Also why I made this clock. It was nice to be able to tell the time. But the time gets boring pretty quick, what with it almost being the same all the time. Just ever so slightly changing from moment to moment.
So now somehow I have Discordian date using calendar thing in a shell on the one side, my main window in the main bit, a clock in the upper right corner, two different python shells across the rest of the top along with a gtalk and irssi screen for communication, and a twitter stream in screen at the bottom of it all (other daemons sit down there too, like VPN connections).
Looks something like this on at any given time:
It’s a whole lot of keyboard shortcuts; at least tmux is mouse enabled.
