Infrequent routine steps

Continuing the discussion from Morning routine steps:

Aside from the daily reminders, some tasks are repeated on large timescales, so I’ll remark upon them in this topic.

process docs recur:7d

Similar to my downloads directory, if I don’t keep up on gardening my docs will overgrow and I won’t be able to find anything.

I use the same query from In the beginning... a filesystem

find . -type f -printf '%T+ %p\n' | sort | head -n 1

That shows me the oldest file, by last modified date.

Today, I found an old text file I was jotting ideas down, and stuck in docs:

[maiki@violet docs]$ find . -type f -printf '%T+ %p\n' | sort | head -n 1
2018-10-20+10:59:28.4697261640 ./writing-ideas.md

It had a few ideas in it, but only one was interesting enough for me to note (Holmes Org).

I’ll discuss how I process old docs soon. :slight_smile:
