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.

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 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?
