- mocp/mpd+ncmpcpp
- mplayer (video player)
- calcurse (calender)
- mutt (mail)
- gpg (pretty good privacy)
- links/w3m (www browser)
- gpm (so you can click links in w3m)

- lftp (ftp client)
- mc/ranger (filemanager)
- weechat/irssi (irc client)
- CenterIM (msn messenger/yahoo client)
- fim/feh (image viewer)

Good lists here, some new things to explore.  My problem is most of what I used is wrapped in a script but I do find myself using the following directly in one way or another daily or nearly so

emacs
rdiff
cdargs
bashburn
incrontab (even though I never see it, I use it to backup my work folders, music, etc. automatically)
terminator

Ozitraveller, yes aria2 is very cool again thanks. Of more interest to me is pulling it apart to understand the calls it makes.  Innovative, interesting and open source. Definitely deserves some more love.

dtrx is also interesting.  I already have a function in my bash environment that will intelligently extract archives but the ability to recursively do so adds a nice feature.  In looking at the script itself I realize how poor my python skills are.  Nice tool to have in the arsenal though.  Thanks again ozitraveller.
