Schedule Into Org Mode

August 25th, 2011
org_mode, tech, emacs  [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

Transfers from Infrequent to Frequent Vehicles

Imagine yourself taking a train somewhere, and imagine the train is big and infrequent. Let’s say it’s the commuter train from New York down the Northeast Corridor to Newark Airport, or perhaps a low-cost OuiGo TGV from Lyon to Paris. Now imagine that you…

Algorithms interviews: theory vs. practice

When I ask people at trendy big tech companies why algorithms quizzes are mandatory, the most common answer I get is something like "we have so much scale, we can't afford to have someone accidentally write an O(n^2) algorithm and bring the site d…
