Calendar About Nothing Invades My Shell

While the Calendar About Nothing (CAN) has been around for a few years, I’ve never been self-disciplined enough to maintain a decent track record of open source contributions.

So I’ve finally taken some initiative to begin contributing to projects consistently and tracking those on my calendar about nothing. But I’m an out-of-sight, out-of-mind kind of guy. I need a reminder from time to time.

Inspired by my terminal outputting the last login timestamp, I threw together a shell script I’m calling to show the date of my last open source commit. With this, when opening a new window or tab in Terminal, I see the date and hopefully it serves as my string around the finger.
