DerStandard.at Live Ticker Terminal Viewer

A reader for live news tickers from Austrian newspaper Der Standard for the command line people. It's UNIX-y: no ncurses or advanced cursor manipulation, backend written in shell, frontend in awk. With the sixty column reflow one can easily fit three or more tickers side-by-side.
