          @tanja Can't wait to try it out!

            @tanja awesome! Maybe for a future version you could render attached images as ASCII :-)
            tanja
              @avidwriter haha! yeah, that would be cool... kinda like cowsay :D

                  @tanja #brio looks awesome. Thanks for creating it! I think you're already aware, but it doesn't seem to like ruby 1.8.7 (the version included in Mountain Lion). You now have this non-ruby geek learning about rvm :P I'm excited to play with this.

                    @tanja Aw, can't install Ruby on this system b/c username has space in it. Will mess around at home. :P
                    tanja
                      @cardinal yeah, sorry about that. got reports about not working with 1.8.7. it's been so long since i'v switched to 1.9 that i forgot about others :( ... will try and make it work for 1.8.7 too. Thanks for checking it out! :)
                      tanja
                        @33mhz ok, please do! :) one thing to keep in mind, you'll have to have ruby 1.9.x ... kind of forgot about "the older" rubies for this release :(

                          @tanja No worries! I got 1.9 installed & am playing now. Any advice on getting the original post id of a RP using brio? I wanted to RP your announcement, which I saw via @dalton, but trying to RP that gives a “bad request” error saying I can’t RP a RP.

                            @cardinal i guess i'll have to fix the reposts of a reposts.. going into my bug list :)
                            tanja
                              @cardinal the thing with reposts is that they can't be reposted (limit of the api: https://github.com/appdotnet/api-spec/blob/master/resources/posts.md#repost-a-post) so perhaps i should omit the ability to repost a repost, or ... find a plan B instead :)
                              cardinal
                                @tanja Could you query the API for the post ID of the original post, then expose that in brio the way you do for replies?
                                tanja
                                  @cardinal yeah, this could work :)
                                  cardinal
                                    @tanja Ooh, maybe you could handle the repost-of-repost error directly if the user tries to do that. “Cannot repost a repost, so reporting original post instead.”
                                    tanja
                                      @cardinal that would be trickier ... the command line app does not have memory of what happened before. it only lives for that instant while it runs the current command, so it would not know that the repost was a repost until it contacts the adn api.

                                        @tanja ahh, that makes sense. I thought I was so clever! :)
                                        tanja
                                          @cardinal will keep this solution for v6.5 when i'll make it run as a background process ;)

                                            @tanja Cool! Will give it a spin tomorrow!
