Tried x11 forwarding with emacs client and it's very slow.. currently my setup is to work with syncthing and have several independent emacs boxes. TRAMP doesn't work (not sure why, looks like the fancy shell prompt issue, but using sshx didn't solve it).

How do you edit your work with emacs away from home?

OK and folks of the mastodons, answer me this (pretty please):

is there a way to harness the power of Emacs without running Emacs? How do you do it?

Say, for example, I was to create a macro that uses occur in a file, then replaces all instances of that text with another text, and I want this macro to run with chron once a week...

...or, more org centric, say use org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift in org-mode on a file without actually opening it in emacs, etc.

How would you do it?

Something that just occurred to me:

in I define the frame size to fit my ultra wide screen. It's always the same size. In Windows, my Chrome browser opens to a small size it got stuck on and there's no way to tell it what size I want it to start at.

It's odd how we have so much control on one application... or is it the other way around? That we never have control of something we use so often, every single day? We don' t know how it works and what it does under the hood?

Occur in - use it. Instead of multi-occur, just use your agenda's built-in multi occur (\ key from agenda dispatcher). It will save you hours of search. That is all.

Thought I'd check on this again: anything new on the grammar front in ?

I know there's language tool but it's lacking compared to grammarly. What do you guys use? I ask this question every couple of months, and hope to hear something new :)

yes so it's the specific link. When publishing from I get "unable to resolve link: 'emacs'

the link is this: [[][Emacs]]

the Custom ID is 'emacs' right there in the same document.

why?

I wanted to start a "back to basic" series for org-mode and Emacs.

The idea is to make people more aware of what org-mode has "out of the box" without rushing to use various packages and code bits: the productivity philosophy behind the "why", not just the "how."

I ended up repeating a few things I've said before, so if you find that you're interested in more details about something, look under the "orgmode" tag.

Hope you enjoy it!

You'd think a standing desk is not a big deal. I know I did. As it turns out though, it's actually a huge positive change.

here's my story: joshrollinswrites.com/help-des

I know my partner will stab me if I rant too long about or but at least I can rush out of my room excitedly and tell him "the css display in line thing doesn't work because the element is on a different div!" and he totally gets me. Geeks rule.

Elfeed + MPV + YouTube = a match meant to be made.

A new blog post: How Emacs and its awesome Elfeed keeps me updated without all the adds and junk.

I'm don't have years of experience with Emacs or programing. So where I manage to learn how to change color or tweak a font to my liking, it's a big deal. Here's how I changed my org-mode colors to work better for me:

re-discovering elfeed in and starting to really like it. Anyone's getting rss feeds from here? Mastodon? Can share how it works for them?

I'm trying to start emacs with eww-open-file. To do that, I type $emacs -q -f eww-opne-file [path].

However, this opens up the file browser, not the file I want specifically. why?

(-q because I have initial buffer disabled)

geek level 1: not working on regular geeky shit to do a more geeky project.
level 2: googling, picking co-worker minds, and scripting something for a few hours until completion.
level 3: coming home an adding it to my wiki
Bonus level: wiki is on org-mode

😁😁😁

Most of you know I blog about and sometimes but I am also getting into : joshrollinswrites.com/help-des

Any advice on how to reach the audience? Not as simple as it sounds (reddit photo communities ban self promotion; Instagram is images only)

hope you like the break from tech stuff! :D

@kaushalmodi trying to wrap my head around using -mode macros for instagram instead of shortcodes since these don't work well with .

Doesn't really fit into submitting a bug, since I understand why shortcode doesn't work... I don't know what I'm looking for..? manual is cryptic about org macros, not sure how to utilize. Suggestions?

Even if you don't use I thikn this could be useful to some. How I keep track of my projects (spoiler: it's far from rocket science):
