  • 09:59 UTC (new) 2017-12-04 Embedding files in Org-mode . . . . Marcin Borkowski A few days ago, there was a question on the help-gnu-emacs mailing list about a way to embed an image in a text file. Of course, the OP was instantly pointed to Org-mode. However, this does not quite do what he wanted: while you can have attachments/links to images in Org, you then need two files instead of one. This being Emacs and Org-mode, there exists an (at least partial) solution.


  • 16:40 UTC (new) 2017-11-27 Org-mode radio targets . . . . Marcin Borkowski One of the interesting features of Org-mode is hyperlinks. For some documents, having many internal links makes a lot of sense. One of these types is mathematical papers: you often want to refer to “Theorem 2.1” or “Definition 3” or “equation (5)”. LaTeX has that pretty much solved (even core LaTeX, and then there are packages to help, like cleveref). Org-mode does not improve a lot on that, but it’s usually enough anyway. But it’s not the topic of my post today.


  • 12:30 UTC (new) 2017-11-19 How to trip up yourself using Git . . . . Marcin Borkowski Everyone and their mother seem to be using Git these days. And I have to admit that it is really a clever piece of code. However, sometimes it may not work like you want it to do. Let me share a personal story.



  • 13:07 UTC (new) 2017-11-12 My email workflow – an addendum . . . . Marcin Borkowski Some time ago I wrote about my email capturing workflow. After I’ve written that text, I noticed that my command does not work well when launched in message mode (as opposed to the headers view mode). I tried to debug this problem, but to no avail. Until yesterday.


  • 18:01 UTC (new) 2017-11-06 Keyboard macros and asynchronicity . . . . Marcin Borkowski Some time ago I wanted to send a bunch of emails from mu4e. I had all the data in a csv file, so I figured out that I’ll just record a keyboard macro of myself sending the email and press f4 a few times. Well, it didn’t work.
