Schedule Into Org Mode

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

At naptime Anna listens to recordings of novels recorded by Jeff’s grandmother. It is the main way she will know Winnie, as it is the main way I have ever known Winnie. Some of the recordings are missing parts, and Suzie often fills in the first few sente…

I really like One Night Ultimate Werewolf (ONUW), and recommend trying it out. The Daybreak expansion is also good (but I’d skip the later games in the series). App For those who’ve played a lot and wish the night took 20 seconds rather than a few minutes…
