Do you need big, feature-packed, and sometimes complex tool for your work, to stay organized, or keep track of your tasks?
Maybe all you need is plain text. Yes, simple, old fashioned, unadorned, boring text. It sounds scary or alien, but it’s not.
I use plain text for my notes and keeping track of my work orders. Entering deadlines and related information in calendar applications is a fiddly, time-consuming nightmare, and I find it much easier to just jot down the date, time, and related information in plain text, ordered by date and time.
Works fine. I do it all the time and have done since the late 80’s.
Another good one is to “cat $HOME/txt/announce.txt” at the end of my .profile so I can see what’s coming up. Eg at login, the last thing I see is:
06-DEC-2019-1930-Christmas Drinks next door with neighbors.
07-DEC-2019-1100-Eye check with “Margaret”.
Always love it when some guy thinks the whole world speaks jargon. The irony here is that most (if not all) who actually knows what “plain text” is and why isn’t whatever they’re using “plain text” are probably using “plain text” or have considered using it.
