How helpful of them! This is so cool.

10. More about diagrams in Linux

Categories: None -- Permalink
From Allan Espinosa:

xfig is a great clipart diagramming editor the "wysiwyg" component does not look too good when zoomed out. for example, a polygon created does not look like a "polygon" but just jagged lines. But when zoomed in the polygon can be seen. The rendering to postscript was also exceptionally good with anti-aliasing. what are you guys using to edit *.fig files? will compilation with xaw3d widgets fix this or the xaw3d libraries are just eyecandy? the screenshots from the site looks nicely rendered but i thinked they zoomed it enough not to show all the ugly aliasing and poor rendering

xfig is good for quick and dirty diagrams but if i want to have good looking pictures with subscripts and formulas I use GNU pic/ dpic with m4 macros. the circuit_macros package from is one of the best schematic drawing packages out there. The output looks like text-book quality schematics!

7. Cyclic task support

Categories: PlannerMode#35 -- Permalink
PlannerMode now supports cyclic tasks through planner-cyclic.el . Not bad for an hour of hacking. Comments welcome!


6. Notes for future cyclic tasks support

Categories: PlannerMode#34 -- Permalink
<sachac> johnsu01: What kind of stuff do you do every Tuesday, anyway? =)
<sachac> johnsu01: I've been thinking of adding cyclic task support to planner-id... =)
<johnsu01> sachac: that would make me happy. cyclic tasks are what I have been using the diary for. obviously not perfect
           because they are not actually tasks :)
<johnsu01> sachac: I like to have the recurring tasks pile up, so i know how far behind I am in my German, reading, etc
<sachac> You'll be interested in planner-find-task and
         planner-create-task-from-info. You'll need to hook into
         something that gets run whenever you open a file - look at
         planner-diary for ideas. Create a task based on the page
         name, search forward for it, and if you don't find it on the
         page, create it. Something like that?

5. ZOE email client

Categories: None -- Permalink

Slicing and dicing your e-mail. I want an Emacs interface to this, and I want it to deal with more than just my e-mail.

Ideas I can steal:

- keyword search - people - files - links
