Command Line Todo list

I recently decided to try out Gina Trapani's Todo.txt command line task manager. Its essentially a complicated shell script, which means that it won't run natively under Windows. It does, however, work under Cygwin. It's a neat little toy and I have been using it so far but I suppose only time will tell as to whether or not I find it to be practical for me. There is a tutorial on how to set it up over at the Todo.txt website. I followed those directions almost exactly. I found it to be unnecessary to add anything to my .profile file and my alias looks like this:
alias t='~/Documents/todo/./todo.sh'
If you have looked through my .bashrc file you may have noticed that this alias is missing. It lives in my .bash_aliases file instead along with a few others that only work with my personal configuration.
