Looking at http://crazedmonkey.com/toronto-transit-map/ , it seems that I have a couple of ways to get up to 3600 Steeles Ave E, Markham:
The general impression I get is that taking public transit up there sucks horribly. It's close to 8200, so I might be able to hitch a ride with W-, but I'll need a way of getting up there on my own as well. Makes me wish I'd started my driver's license process sooner.
First, I need to find a carpool. Second, I need to test ways of getting up there by TTC. Third, if it means spending three to four hours commuting each day (sniff!), then I need to find productive ways to spend that time. That's a _lot_ of time.
Hmm. Some hauling may be required. I should ask Gabriel what his commute's like.

As part of my research for WickedCoolEmacs, I'm exploring Org, the PIM that's now built into Emacs 22. I like the way it handles outlines, and the remember templates are handy too. I also like the dynamic agenda views.
I miss some things about Planner, though. I miss the way I can just move tasks around in Planner, grouping them together as I organize my day. I miss the way it was easy to publish a day view that included my tasks and my notes. I miss little conveniences like +2tue . Maybe I can hack some of those in. I want to avoid turning org into something it isn't, though.
I need to find people who live org and how they do it. John Wiegley's excellent blog post on using org-mode as a day planner is a good start. Who else is a power user of org? Must read the mailing list to find the tips and tricks people have shared...
