I would use something like this frequently.  A couple of examples:

- annual events, such as anniversaries and birthdays.  I'd like
  a SCHEDULED item a week or two ahead telling me to buy a
  present
- every month there's a banking transaction I do that I'd like
  SCHEDULED

In addition, there are periodic events I have where the current diary
support is fine, but even for this information I would rather keep it
in org format and mixed with relevant org files.

illustrated brief tutorial for org-mode


Hi all. I've made an illustrated tutorial for org-mode. This tutorial
only covers the most basic features and only a few situations, but it
is profusely illustrated with screenshots and could help new users get
an idea of how org-mode looks and feels. It's meant as a sort of
brief guided tour.

In other news, I am working on blogging support for org-publish. More
news as events warrant...

Re: illustrated brief tutorial for org-mode

Thanks David!  I didn't know about the CLOSED: tag.
Carsten, could you link to this from the main org-mode site?  By the
way, there was a typo in the link, the correct one is:

This org-mode tutorial is absolutely brilliant. Well done.

colorless and linkless

Hi --

(Please excuse the double-posting if any -- I'm fairly certain that my
first attempt to post this was unsuccessful.)

I've been using org mode (now at version 4.27) in Linux (FC4, current
updates, emacs 21.4.1) for a few months. I really like it -- thanks to
Carsten and others who have contributed. Everything was working well
until sometime last month. However, at that time the colors and links
stopped appearing on the screen. The TODO entries show up, and I can
cycle through the different TODO keywords, but there's no color.

In addition, the links don't show as links.

(I'm syncing my org files with my work computer, where I'm running
emacs on Windows XP. The links and colors show up there as expected.)

This change happened at a time when I was working with my org-init.el
file (called by .emacs) to set up an integration with remember.el.
It also happened about the time that Carsten changed the font-lock
faces for org mode. I mention both of these things, but (a) I can't
see how the changes I made to org-init.el might have caused the
problem and (b) I think that if changes Carsten made caused the problem
then others would surely have seen it.

Obviously, though, I know much less about emacs than others on this
list. Can someone please suggest some things that I can check?

Thanks.

Re: colorless and linkless

Just a quick follow-up.

I should have said earlier that I backed off to a minimal org config
set-up in my org-init.el file -- only the basic lines specified in the
documentation -- and I still have neither colors nor links.

org-occur raises signal?

Hi,

this may not be a problem in general, but it's an irritant with
emacspeak.

Command org-occur calls signal even when it succeeds, and this
caused me to think the command was failing --- 
specifically -- it raises 
Already at top level of the outline 
--- any chance of not using signal when the command succeeds?
