Time to get in your face once more with some Bash silliness.
I demonstrated how simple text files and a shellscript can generate a to-do list and a schedule for the next three days, which you can stick in your root window.
I wasn’t done. Next, I wanted to write a program which given user input would generate the schedule files for you without knowledge of the file conventions. I’m a Bash scripter, but I think it would be so cool to do this graphically (coz scanf/scan.next()/read in a terminal window is so lame if you are running X)
At any rate: That application and a newer version of the to-do list generator are here:

Have Fun! Feel free to give me feedback on improvements.
