CLI Day 2014

CLI day has been a great holiday. I came up with it a few years ago to celebrate all the cool stuff you can do with the command line, and to hopefully get more people using it.
Last year, because of some events, I didn’t really do much for CLI Day. This year, it’s back and stronger than ever. I wanted to make some changes though, and since it’s my holiday, I figured what the heck, I may as well.
Someone suggested to me that CLI Day should be on May 31, because CLI in Roman Numerals is 151. Originally I wanted my birthday, may 29, to be CLI Day, but I realize the my birthday rocks all by itself, so the Roman Numeral thing is a great idea.
Second, I think CLI Day should be decentralized. So, if you have a blog or whatever, write about it. If you have a Identi.ca or Diaspora account, mension #CLIDay. Enjoy using the commandline, and share the love with others.
This year, for CLI Day, I would like to share a new git project with you. I have written, and am in the process of writing, some games for the command line. It’s definitely a work in progress still, but the games are a lot of fun. If you would like to play, you need bash 4.2+, rolldice, and sox.

git clone git://github.com/stormdragon2976/storm-games.git
Have fun, and enjoy CLI Day 2014!
