I have been using Crunchbang for a little bit now and about two weeks ago, I was pleased to configure it exactly how I like it. This is a problem because now I don't know how to kill the time I was using playing with the text files. My question is, once you get the configuration the way you like it, what do you guys spend most of your time doing?
I have gotten used to navigating through the file system with the terminal and do my installs and such from it. Where should I go next? Scripts, pipemenus, configuring a home server...?
I write the essay which I spend the weekend putting off while I tweak my #!...
Not, perhaps, the best time management at university, but meh.
Install another window manager for a change (Openbox will stay anyway) and play around with its configs. Tilers are a good starting point, and if you want to dive into customization hell, choose fvwm-crystal
Point & Squirt
You could dive into emacs.
That should keep you busy for some time.
It is more an OS than an editor. You can do almost anything from within emacs without file manager, mail reader, etc... both in a console session as under X.
