commandliners – Blog written by and for commandliners.




commandliners is a blog for those who prefer typing at a terminal to meddling with a mouse, for those who think using mouse is a waste of time, for those who wonder about the benefits of X when there is a ‘screen’ command, for those who prefer NetHack over WoW, in one word, for those who love writing on black screen :)
