Notes

1. Burst of productivity, thoughts on maintenance

Categories: None -- Permalink
It's 9:17 and I'm looking at a neat list of completed planner tasks, mainly thanks to Sergey Vlasov's attention to detail and neat bugfixing skills. The Planner community has really grown in all directions. Practically all the bugfixes and new features come from the users themselves; they're really more co-developers. My role as a maintainer, then, is more of documenting what's there, helping newbies, guiding people through the source code, and hosting the thing. Other projects have maintainers who set the project's direction. On the other hand, I follow where people go. I really enjoy doing that, and it thrills me to no end when I can hack something together quickly to fit a particular person's way of working. =) I'm not much of a maintainer--bugs keep creeping in, new features hardly get worked on--but I really love working with the community. _They're_ the real maintainers, and they're soooooo cool.

2. Wow! Cleared my mail inbox!

Categories: None -- Permalink
Finally unticked everything in mail.misc and mail.planner. All the ticked mails are now represented as tasks in my planner... Yay! =) That feels good, too.

3. Planner tip: What day is it?

Categories: None -- Permalink
I sometimes forget what day it is, so I changed my planner template to something that fills in the day, too.
(defun sacha/planner-day-page-template ()
  "Day page template for Sacha."
  (let ((date (planner-filename-to-calendar-date (planner-page-name))))
    (insert "Headlines for "
            (calendar-day-name date)
            ":\n\n<notes>\n\n* Tasks\n\n\n* Notes\n\n")))
(setq planner-day-page-template 'sacha/planner-day-page-template)

4. The faint smell of burnt protein...

Categories: None -- Permalink
... wafts up from freshly-dried pillows.

Hmm. Maybe they're serious about "tumble-dry low-heat for several hours".

5. Argh. Got my own number wrong.

Categories: None -- Permalink
I've been writing down "832" instead of "834" as the first three digits of my cellphone. Argh.
