  • Schedule Into Org Mode

    August 25th, 2011
    emacs, org_mode, tech
    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):
    Monday     22 August 2011 W34

    Why Neighborhoods Should Have Speed Bumps

    I have several reasons I think why neighborhoods should have speed bumps. First, speed bumps are very useful to stop cars from hitting people in the streets. Second, when construction workers installed speed bumps on the street in front of our house it was v…
