Schedule Into Org Mode

August 25th, 2011
tech, emacs, org_mode  [html]

I keep a public schedule on sccs, which I maintain with a script. To get this available in org-mode in the agenda view, I needed to:
  • modify the schedule script to create schedule.org in addition to schedule.ical.
  • set up cron on my laptop to automatically download it every 5min
  • tell org-mode about it:
            (setq org-agenda-files (list "~/todo.org"
                                         "~/schedule.org"))
            
  • tell emacs to automatically refresh files from disk when they update if I've made no changes to them within emacs (which I already wanted):
            (global-auto-revert-mode 1)
            
Now I see scheduled tasks in agenda-view:
Week-agenda (W34):

Strong stances

I. The question of confidence Should one hold strong opinions? Some say yes. Some say that while it’s hard to tell, it tentatively seems pretty bad (probably). There are many pragmatically great upsides, and a couple of arguably unconscionable downsides. …

What do executives do, anyway?

An executive with 8,000 indirect reports and 2000 hours of work in a year can afford to spend, at most, 15 minutes per year per person in their reporting hierarchy... even if they work on nothing else. That job seems impossible. How can anyone make any im…
