So uh weird question, does anyone have any recommendations for TODO systems that are meant for use with plural systems?

okay so I've been told about a CLI TODO system called TDL

and I could hack up a `pyenv`/`rbenv`/whatever-alike to switch the shell context based on whoever is fronting

and have access to both a shared TODO and personal TODOs?

@aurynn is _not_ having [trivial] access to others' personal todos a priority?

@Lore It's not a huge technical priority, no. Everyone is willing to be polite and respect privacy, and the watcher is willing to enforce it if needed

@aurynn wei've had good results with using emacs-org, especially for repeating task management and variable-delay repetition. It's easy to keep separate todo files for everyone, and while wei haven't done it ourselves i would think it would be straightforward to use tags to make separated (or intersecting!) aggregate views.
it's a hell of an up front investment in figuring out using it though

@Lore someone else I know espouses the virtues of org-mode as well, I’ve not really used emacs though 😞.

Unrelated… the wei/muir first person pronouns are … very interesting to one of us, thank you


@aurynn yeah,, emacs really is my favorite operating system to use for text editing 😅 with a limited scope though learning the controls to do what you want in a specific task space is less overwhelming. still not none though :/

and wei're happy to have introduced wei/muis/muir to yall! 😁

- Make as many separated lists as you want, easily collate them into one daily/weekly list view
