;;;_+ Inbox anti-addiction hack ;; ;; The following code implements the inbox productivity hack described ;; by Don Marti in http://www.linuxworld.com/community/?q=node/387 . ;; People are not allowed to check mail for more messages unless the ;; number of ticked items has decreased since the last time checked ;; or `sacha/gnus-inbox-time-threshold' seconds have passed. ;; ;; Use ! (tick article) to mark articles as needing action. ;; Modify the logic if you move messages from your inbox into some kind ;; of archive (which is probably a better idea). (defvar sacha/gnus-inbox-time-threshold (seconds-to-time (* 60 60 2)) "*Number of seconds before you can check again if you haven't done any work. Nil means don't use time.") (defvar sacha/gnus-inbox-group "mail.misc" "*Group to consider as inbox.") (defvar sacha/gnus-inbox-last-count nil "Number of ticked items in inbox.") (defvar sacha/gnus-inbox-last-check nil "Timestamp of last check.") (defun sacha/gnus-inbox-decreased-p () "Return non-nil if you are allowed to check mail. Based on http://www.linuxworld.com/community/?q=node/387" (or (not (numberp sacha/gnus-inbox-last-count)) ;; First time called (and sacha/gnus-inbox-last-check sacha/gnus-inbox-time-threshold (not (time-less-p (time-since sacha/gnus-inbox-last-check) sacha/gnus-inbox-time-threshold))) (or (= (sacha/gnus-inbox-count) 0) (< (sacha/gnus-inbox-count) sacha/gnus-inbox-last-count)))) (defadvice gnus-group-get-new-news (around sacha/gnus-inbox-check-mail activate) "Allow only if the inbox count has decreased." (if (sacha/gnus-inbox-decreased-p) ad-do-it (error "Get your mail count below %d first." sacha/gnus-inbox-last-count)) (setq sacha/gnus-inbox-last-count (sacha/gnus-inbox-count) sacha/gnus-inbox-last-check (current-time))) (defun sacha/gnus-inbox-count () "Return number of ticked items in `sacha/gnus-inbox-group'." (save-window-excursion (gnus-summary-read-group-1 sacha/gnus-inbox-group nil t nil t) (length gnus-newsgroup-marked)))
Random Emacs symbol: set-process-filter-multibyte - Function: Set multibyteness of the strings given to PROCESS's filter.
Whenever I post a note to wikindx, it pops up a dialog prompting me to save or edit index.php. This probably means that a file type is getting screwed up somewhere. However, index.php views fine by itself. I think that means that in the code that handles those particular functions, a content type is not getting set (or is getting set to something it shouldn't be).
Ah, I give up. I'll use Emacs to manage my bibliography and my quotes.
Random Emacs symbol: read-file-name - Function: Read file name, prompting with PROMPT and completing in directory DIR.
