Forgetful penguins love Tasque

Filed under
Software

Do you forget stuff? Do you wonder where the heck you put the keys when they're in your right hand? Do you get in the shower with your socks still on? Do you ever get to the bus stop, and realize you can't recall if you've put on pants? We're the only ones? Really? Damn.

We're willing to bet you can still benefit from Tasque, even if you just need reminders about the things normal people put on their to-do lists.

There are a few other to-do list applications in Linux, but most lack the finesse that Tasque is already bringing to the table. Tasque is a newcomer (it got its start at last year's Hackweek), and seems well on its way to becoming a big player.

Tasque (pronounced "Task") is a unified frontend for a number of backends. Honest to god, we don't mean anything obscene by that. What we mean is, it's a very standard graphical interface that works with a number of to-do and database types to make your to-do list dynamic.In our case, the backend we used was Remember the Milk. We could have used Evolution, or SQLite, but we like Remember the Milk.

re: Tasque

Seems like a hard to install, redundant (i.e. useless) app.

Especially since they use an ONLINE "To-Do" manager as the backend. Why bother with "Tasque" when all you need is a browser to connect to your "task manager" at Remember the Milk? To make it even more useless, there's already Firefox Plug-ins for Remember the Milk.

So maybe the first to-do on Tasque's task list is to find a market that's not already being done to death (and doesn't require compile from source to install - or depend on someone else's web application to work).

4 open source tools for Linux system monitoring

This article discusses some of the interactive command line interface (CLI) tools that are provided with or which can be easily installed on Red Hat related distributions including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, CentOS, and other derivative distributions. Although there are GUI tools available and they offer good information, the CLI tools provide all of the same information and they are always usable because many servers do not have a GUI interface but all Linux systems have a command line interface. This article concentrates on the tools that I typically use. If I did not cover your favorite tool, please forgive me and let us all know what tools you use and why in the comments section.
