Journal flynn_nrg's Journal: A year of The Fish 2

Today I've released a new version of The Fish, my little contribution to the FreeBSD community. It was almost one year ago that we talked about it in the freebsd-hackers mailing list. It's come a long way, with far more people using it than I had expected for such a niche program. After all, its use is for FreeBSD admins, it's very tied to the platform. I'm quite happy today, I'd even say it's the best thing that has happened in this otherwise crappy xmas holidays.

A year of The Fish

  • Looks like a great little project you have there. Had I known about it when I started with OpenBSD (It also works on OpenBSD, right?), I'd probably have used it.
    However being forced straight into vi with the config files, teaches you a lot. I don't regret having to go through the hassle of understanding the system. Big advantage is: now I'm comfy with vi, know where my important config files are, and in general feel more close to the system.

    Good luck with your project!

    • Now that I visited your homepage, I think I had better shut up about OpenBSD. I think I'm going to get me a Hello Kitty laptop now. ;-)
