Should emacs-wiki links be easily editable?

March 10, 2004 - Categories: emacs

With the recent addition of `emacs-wiki-link-escape’ and
`emacs-wiki-link-unescape’, links are now unescaped before displaying.
This makes them uneditable. People probably shouldn’t be editing the
links manually as this can screw up planner links (among others), but
I should provide an easy way to edit the link at point. I have a
function in my emacs-wiki-config.el to do that. I’ll probably bind to
C-c C-e, which makes sense.


On snarfing Outlook schedule entries

As we now mostly use ~/.diary for our schedule entries, Outlook
schedule import is not PlannerMode‘s problem any more. ;) It would be
kinda nice for RememberMode, though.

ASTI Embedded Systems Group looking for interns

March 10, 2004 - Categories: -Uncategorized

The Embedded Systems Group of the Advanced Science and Technology
Institute (ASTI-DOST) is looking for highly motivated techie
undergrads for it’s summer internship program. Qualified applicants
should be undergraduates in Computer Science, Computer Engineering,
ECE, and related fields. Knowledge in either C/C++, the Linux kernel
and OS, or device drivers, etc. is a plus, but all other applicants
are welcome to apply anyway. Send in your updated resume to
[email protected] and we would contact you asap. Flyers would
hopefully be distributed to the individual departments within the

I highly recommend this. =) I was part of the embedded systems group
during my summer practicum. Those guys are cool. (And I got to hack on
the Linux iPAQ a bit more…)

Planner tasks from notes

March 10, 2004 - Categories: emacs

Planner tasks from notes should update the notes page that they link
to while maintaining the special links. This means that
planner-jump-to-linked-task needs to be smarter.

Let us look at case 1: Link to plan page note

The plan page has a date link, no anchor. The date page has a plan
link with an anchor. Example:

 #A1  _ Foo (2004.03.11)
 #A1  _ Foo ([[SomePage#1][SomePage]])

Problem! The plan page does not contain enough information to
reconstruct the link if necessary. I can’t think of a neat way to fix
this yet. Can anyone?
