How to use remember-planner

How do you file your notes under specific topics? Like all your
short stories are under short stories, right? How does that work?

You can use remember-planner to quickly add notes to planner files. After setting up remember-planner according to the notes in remember-planner.el, use M-x remember to open a buffer for notes. It starts out with a link to the current buffer. After you type in your note, hit C-c C-c (remember-region). This prompts you for a planner page to associate the note with. By default, notes are added only to today's day page. However, if you specify something else (ShortStories, for example), then the note is copied to that page. =)

Necessity is the mother of invention

I love the Internet. I really, really do.

I spent the last hour talking to my family through Skype, a free-as-in-beer-but-not-speech Internet telephony service with excellent quality and cross-platform clients. Wheeee. (Now all it needs is webcam support, mumblemumble.)

Get this—my _mom_ recommended it to me. I have a cool mom. =)

And they were chatting through a recently-installed LAN port in the bedroom.

On a iBook whose built-in speaker and microphone are way, way sensitive. Sensitive enough to pick up my dad from a bit of a distance. Wow.

It's really different, you know, when people don't have to worry about typing. When the computer disappears.

I love technology and the way it lets me connect. =)
