use perl and forget sed

perl one liner that will replace all strings in a text file.

perl -pi -e "s/searchForText/replacewithThis/g;" *.txt

ok, the above sucks but it was what I found before.

Here is what is needed
perl -pi.bak -e "s/searchForText/replacewithThis/g" testf.txt

tested on 5.8 win32 - from activestate

Great collection of Windows VBScripts

I found a great collection of scripts, this covers some things the scripting guys miss.

I found under the networking section two dns scripts that I found helpful.

GTD - a new d3 is on the way

I started playing with GTD, I checked out MonkeyGTD and d3, as well as others (one with a Ruby on Rails backend).

I like d3 for the simpleness, however there are some things I would look at changing.

Google Group Discussion

I want to get to a point where GTD is my main area for journal, tasks, project list, etc.

Some things I want to add:
checkbox for common tags such as estimated time,15min, 20min.

Also I want to customize the RSS options as there are pocketmod templates which can read rss.
