Some weeks ago I posted about SDF and my intention to become MetaArpa as soon as possible. I was interested in many of the services offered there, the most immediate ones were using gopher, screen + irc client. But after some connection issues I decided to ping sdf and sdf-eu, which is closer to my location.

PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.

64 bytes from ( icmp_req=3 ttl=243 time=80.6 ms

So I decided to ask where to settle my home. The advice was, naturally SDF-EU. So here I am. I decided to take a screenshot of my everyday life at sdfeu. In the picture (which will also be the "Screenshot of the week") you can see me reading the bboard (Bulletin board) . Using mc (The midnight commander, file manager) and irc-ing with Weechat.

Note: Using blackbox as window manager (Debian Squeeze default)

You know I have recently blogged a bit about Irssi, an extraordinary irc client I have been using quite a lot.

But I recently discovered Weechat Another extraordinary irc client. I like it because it offers some functionalities as defaults that you can only enjoy in Irssi using scripts (Which means searching, downloading and loading scripts into the client)

One of the outstanding features of Weechat is that you can toggle your filters with Alt + Shift + = (Pretty awesome)

Apart from that, I like to say that Weechat is like the console counterpart of X-chat a very popular graphical client. I took a screenshot of both applications at work at the same time for you to compare. Which one do you prefer? I choose Weechat
