Yes, I originally said above (post:59) that yay is still being maintained and receiving security/compatibility updates. Paru will just get more new features as time goes on. They're still pretty much the same as of now.

I happen to think having a humble text file with a list of commands you might need for various scenarios is great. I've had one for years.

Long ago in a place far away, there was a big bang. A bang so big, the servers we're no longer able to access their forum data. And from that day, I became a nameless entity on the internet. A new man. And then, a path was laid before me. And as I came to understand the learnings of the great script(ure), it became clear that this was the path to enlightenment I had to take.
