I recon it would be cool to have a cmdline version of jbid i could run on my main linux box that i never turn off. So I could make bids on XP in the gui version but the bids a keep central in the linux box then i turn of my other computers and the linux box would run my bids over night etc..

failing that a commandline version that I can run in a shell without X!

+1 This is very similar what I do with rtorrent, and its great. Perhaps what the author would like is what I used to do with Azureus, which had a server version with a telnet and a web interface.

But the basic solution that I think all the linux geeks would be happy to see would be a command line version we could run in a screen session, and ssh to the box running it and reattach / un-attach from that screen session to input new items, as mentioned in the authors second paragraph. Think of all the electricity we’ll save being able to turn off our desktops!

You can use NX, and you have what you want…
This is what I do, and it works just fine.

With NX, you can suspend your X windows session and resume it from anywhere on the internet.
It is free.
