CLI History Meme

— Paul Annesley, December 2008

I just came across Rob Hudson's Command Line History, which in turn reminded me of Mark Pilgrim's History meme from back in April.

After waiting a fashionably-late eight months, I'll use this as an excuse to find out if I can still publish to my site since hastily patching it up to Django 1.0 three months ago. I suspect that says something about my technology vs. writing priorities.
