If only.. Soon however, mpv will be wired into my brain to give me direct access to all media on my disks.

@neesade:
No, it would be »mst« (mini short term).
The other words are left out, for brevity.
Googles Terminal would be called something like
'Do'.

Yeah but it would use 16gb of RAM, have over 100+ MB install, and probably crash the session if left open too long.

I'm using a lot of the same stuff. Except also using hangups, vifm, custom dvtm, and ffmeg instead of scrot.

I really enjoy using mps-youtube on my slower hardware, instead of having flashplayer run in Firefox taking up 200mb of memory.

But firefox supports html5 out of the box with ffmpeg now?

@dsplayer14:
Is it possible that you just pops in and write something remotely related?

Don't worry, I think it's funny. I just wanted to make sure everybody realises that.

Reviews of terminal apps. A lot of terminal apps of all kind. https://www.youtube.com/user/livibetter/playlists It could also be useful for the hacking session screencast contest...

Well, I thought I would have completed this previously in this thread(pre emacs) but I had not. cusp of 2020 edition:

music: mpd + mpc/scripted[1]
video: mpv
volume control: ponymix/fallback pavucontrol to check things
file manager: emacs(dired)
terminal emulator: emacs(Mx shell)
text editor: emacs
mail client: gmail web client ?
image viewer: emacs or meh
torrent client: deluge -- been meaning to checkout [2]
screenshot: maim/slop + some wrapper functions [3]
system monitor: xst+htop -- but I have just learned of emacs' proced, and it looks nice.
multiplexer: emacs
shell: bash

[1] playlists via search terms: https://github.com/neeasade/dotfiles/blo.../bin/music
[2] https://github.com/skangas/mentor
[3] I keep a folder called 'Last_shot' where I track the last screenshot -- this lets me pin the folder for GTK/qt file selector dialogs so it's easy/mindless to get the most recent screenshot. On new screenshots, the last shot is moved to ~/Screenshots

Sure, why not. There should be nothing in a screenshot tool that couldn't be done with elisp. I don't know of any such implementation (although porting scrot or maim shouldn't be that hard), but I'm guessing October is probably talking about something like https://github.com/tarsius/frameshot or https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/ScreenShot.
