CLI Day 2016

I didn’t have much time to do anything for CLI Day this year. But, I certainly didn’t want to neglect the holiday I created, so I threw something together at the last minute.
This year being a leap year, I thought it may be of interest to show how to find out which day CLI Day falls on. CLI, or the Roman Numeral 151, is also the day the holiday is on, so most years, it would be 5/31. However, this year is a leap year, so this time it is on 5/30. So, to see which day try this command:

\date +'%j' --date="5/31"

This year, that command yields the result 152, meaning of course that CLI Day would fall on 5/30. I know it’s not much, but I’ve been struggling with getting a CLI based screen reader for my new Odroid, and CLI Day sneaked up on me. I was hoping to have compile instructions for speakup on the Odroid for this year’s CLI Day, but that just didn’t happen.
Anyway, happy CLI Day, and I can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with, it is pretty awesome how many people participate now in the holiday I started just for fun and to push myself to learn to use the console for everything.
