    deal with it later For example maybe someone calls and wants to change the time of an appointment I can just capture the new time and update my calendar after the call The capture template is ridiculously simple It just grabs a headline and any associated text and puts a timestamp at the end The capture template is q Quick Note entry file org quick note org n U The quick note org file has FILETAGS QN in the header so that it s easy to find them with a custom agenda view Here it is q Quick Notes tags QN nil Once I ve acted on the note I can type Ctrl k to delete it from the agenda and quick note org file This is a really simple thing but something I m almost certainly going to use a lot Even though it s simple I had to do a bit of research to figure out all the details so I m recording my process here in case any of you want to do the same thing This entry was posted in General and tagged Emacs Org mode Bookmark the permalink A New Stock Photo for a Hacker Remapping Your Keyboard 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

  • Capturing Blog Ideas | Irreal
    current Safari page It s the same call that I used in jcs get link I have a similar template that gets its link from the killring I use that for capturing blog posts that include a link to a tweet Here s what a typical entry looks like TODO Abo abo s remapped keyboard emacs the key acts as an escape to remapped keys Abo abo claims that the main disadvantage is that QWERTY seems sluggish after he got used to using it 2015 02 14 Sat 17 19 http oremacs com 2015 02 14 semi xmodmap One nice thing about this scheme is that I can accumulate notes about the post before I actually write it With my old scheme there was no way of doing this so if I had an idea about the post there was no easy way of recording it Now I just add some notes to the TODO entry I can also add links to related posts so that I have them all available when I start writing Before I could save additional links but there was no way of tying them together other than remembering that they were related Even better I can start writing the post mark it as a DRAFT and add a link to the DRAFT in the agenda Then I can accumulate ideas directly into the post before I m ready to post it Because the draft post is still anchored by the agenda item it doesn t get lost it still appears in my agenda until I publish it and mark it DONE EDIT I just noticed that Sacha Chua has a great post on using org capture and efficient note taking If you re interested in leveraging Org mode for note taking you should definitely take

  • Handling Windows | Irreal
    my work flow involves the same set of files so this really speeds things up It s faster even than just keeping the files open and switching to them with ido I made this work better by stealing another idea from abo abo and upgrading to bookmark and arranging to have distinct starting letters or in some case 2 letters for the bookmark names That with headlong bookmark jump means I can select a file with a single letter or two I also added book marks to call Ibuffer and open Irreal in my browser It s startling what a different feel using this set up gives my Emacs workflow Things just seem faster and smoother The only problem I haven t resolved is how to invoke hydra window Currently F1 F10 and y y are all bound to hydra window I m trying to determine what the best sequence to simulate the SELECT key is I like F1 but dired steals it I could probably remap that after dired is loaded but I m finding F10 more natural I ll probably keep experimenting with different bindings for a while A final benefit is completely unexpected For some reason I have stopped fretting so much over open buffers This entry was posted in General and tagged Emacs Bookmark the permalink A LaTeX Tip Capturing Blog Ideas glucas On what key to use I m a big fan of using the function keys as prefixes and binding common commands to double taps of those keys In practice I find that the difference between hitting and just is negligible but the first approach leaves a lot of other bindings available Even sequences like or are really easy to get under your fingers abo abo I ve got the same problem as you I just can t bring myself to bind hydra window body to n since I m just so used to ace window being there All the good bindings are taken As for the function keys I think F5 F8 and F9 are the best ones jcs I like hydra window so much that I ve given up calling ace window directly I had it bound to C x o so any of the function keys is better I used to use F11 but Emacs 24 4 stole that for full screen I ve been using F10 and have pretty much gotten used to that Maybe F9 would be better Perhaps I ll try it In any event thanks for hydra It s definitely improved my life abo abo You re welcome And feel free to post at https github com abo abo hydra wiki if you come up with some cool hydras Damien Cassou Thanks for the post Could you please give us what you came up with jcs You re asking about how I invoke hydra window body I ve pretty much settled on F10 but may try F9 as suggested by abo abo Damien Cassou Sorry no I
