Necessity is the mother of invention

November 8, 2004 - Categories: -Uncategorized

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

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. =)

Happy birthday, Diane!

Really adorable cat!

We saw this really, really adorable cat on the street. She was so
friendly and well-behaved… <melt> Made me miss Neko and Oliver
so much!

I very nearly took her home. I very nearly didn’t leave, actually. But
the stray cat had a collar, and probably a very worried human, too. I
hope she finds her home soon…

How to use remember-planner

November 8, 2004 - Categories: emacs

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. =)
