I do the same thing on my Linux machine, except I also have scripts I wrote for conveniently adding various tasks and notes to my file with automatic formatting which I predefine in another file for various types of tasks. I then have a cron job that regularly reads the file everyday and puts new items into a Postgres database so I can run queries later through a web interface I host from my home on a static IP so I can check tasks when I’m away from my computer. My plan is to eventually allow for myself to push items into the database and have the txt file sync up with the new lines of text automatically when I startup my machine.

Any chance that you could share those scripts and cron job? I think something like that could be useful to the system I'm trying to build around text files for my own personal productivity.
