  • Making My Org Agenda More Useful | Irreal
    me directly to the entry Here s an example of one day s agenda If I want to know what happened on that day I can jump directly to it in my agenda to find out If I want to see where I ve had dinner I can bring up all the entries with a tag of dinner It s a tremendously powerful system that comes almost for free just by arranging for those active date stamps It could be better though That s where Memacs comes in It automatically extracts data from SMS the Phone s log posts emails and other data sources All of the data magically appears in the agenda without having to explicitly capture it My next step is to adapt some of Voit s Memacs scripts for my own use All this seems pretty geeky but I use the system every day for practical tasks This morning for example I used it to extract data for my tax files If as often happens I find I need to make an update to a blog post there s a link to the source file right in the agenda and clicking on it brings up the proper file As you can see in the example I also add technical items to my journal If I need to export an Org file containing citations to docx and don t remember how I can search for the docx tag to find the journal entry that contains the details Org is tremendously powerful and it pays huge dividends for the effort you expend learning it One of the nice things about Org is you don t have to learn everything at once I keep learning new bits as I find a need for them This entry was posted in General

    key to writing your documents in a reproducible research way You may not be writing journal articles that other researchers will want to check but even if you re just documenting some aspect of your own work having a document with all the code embedded in it is tremendously powerful Right now I have legacy documents where the code that process their data are separate applications I also have Org mode documents where the code to process the data is embedded in the document and I can update the results simply by typing Ctrl c Ctrl c on the code block I can tell you that the latter documents are far easier to deal with Check out Feichtinger s collection of examples to see if some of them won t be useful to you UPDATE Added link to Feichtinger s Github repository This entry was posted in General and tagged Babel Emacs Org mode Bookmark the permalink Schneier on Why We Encrypt What is a Hacker jonEbird Had to look for that github examples link For others https github com dfeich org babel examples jcs Thanks I must be getting feeble minded I ve been forgetting the link a lot lately Fixed in the post Grant Rettke Haven t done it yet but sure that once one masters every example here https eschulte github io org scraps then she will truly understand Babel Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Sebastian Christ on European Quotation Marks NoonianAtall on A Hyper Key on Any USB Keyboard

  • Schneier on Why We Encrypt | Irreal
    that data saying this is something worth trying to exploit The answer of course is to encrypt everything The movement to deprecate HTTP and use only SSL TLS HTTPS is part of that If all of our Web transactions are encrypted it s hard to know which ones are worth trying to decrypt The other harder major vector is email I hardly ever encrypt email because almost no one I communicate with is prepared to deal with it That s a long standing problem of course and one that doesn t admit an easy solution Schneier notes that encryption works best when it s automatic That s what we need for email A system that automatically encrypts the messages we send and decrypts them also automatically at the other end That way Aunt Millie doesn t even have to know what encryption is everything is handled behind the scenes We re still some way from that but I m looking forward to the day when all the three letter agencies are sad because it s really hard to snoop on people anymore This entry was posted in General and tagged Security Bookmark the permalink Happens to Me Every Day Org Babel Examples Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Sebastian Christ on European Quotation Marks NoonianAtall on A Hyper Key on Any USB Keyboard Kris on An Example of Why Reproducible Research Matters Links Useful Emacs Commands Archives April 2016 March 2016 February 2016 January 2016 December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August

  • Annual Who Has Your Back Report | Irreal
    policy opposes backdoors For better or worse all but the most paranoid of us use several of these companies 7 in my case so it s worth knowing which ones are looking out for their users and which are selling our data or rolling over for the government If you re looking for the TL DR the chart at the beginning of the report will tell you who the good guys are and how the others are failing If you re looking for a deeper dive each company s performance is discussed in detail later in the report There are also links to the policies and transparency reports for each of the companies Most people probably aren t going to stop using a company that doesn t rate a perfect score but it s useful to know who s doing what and to adjust your behavior accordingly It s an interesting report and everyone should at least look at the chart Unless that is you re one of the paranoid that stays off the grid Of course in that case you probably aren t reading this This entry was posted in General and tagged Privacy Bookmark the permalink A Tip for Artist Mode Happens to Me Every Day Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Sebastian Christ on European Quotation Marks NoonianAtall on A Hyper Key on Any USB Keyboard Kris on An Example of Why Reproducible Research Matters Links Useful Emacs Commands Archives April 2016 March 2016 February 2016 January 2016 December 2015 November
