Hi,

I've been using org mode for a little while now but I'm still a newbie to both org mode and emacs.  I run org mode on my Nokia N810 as a pocket organizer.  I recently decided to change the color scheme to use a black background in the interest of saving battery power and to not blind myself at night.  Everything looks good so far except for one thing - I cannot see the cursor when it is on a hidden star.  I've looked though all of the faces settings and cannot figure out what I should set differently.  Could somebody point me to the setting I should change?

BTW - Thanks so very much for an awesome program Carsten!  I'm still barely scratching the surface but I'm looking forward to getting more out of it.

I have cursor-color, cursor, and maybe text-cursor.

Mick,

can you tell us more about your experiences using org-mode on such a
device?  Having a pocket sized org-mode organiser really appeals!
Although I've looked at the N810 for just this purpose, I am probably
likely to wait for the new stream of devides like the Umid mbook which
has a slightly larger keyboard.  But any thoughts on this whole topic
are more than welcome!

(my long time goal has been to find something to replace my long
defunct Psion 3)

I am using org mode in emacs 22 on a Nokia N800. This is functionally similar to
the N810. At first I had trouble with seeing the colored fonts because of the
limited number of colors in the xterm app found on the Nokia Tablets. 

i am now using reverse video mode, since this changes several things at once.
Like this:
emacs -rv 20090610.org

The size of the keyboard is irrelevant, since a bluetooth keyboard can be used.
I switch between an iGo Stowaway folding keyboard in my everyday bag and an
Apple Bluetooth keyboard for more extended work.

Hopefully this comes out right, I apologize if it does not, I've never
actually replied to a mailing list.

Eric asked me to describe my experiences using orgmode on my Nokia 810.

I'm actually replying to this on my N810.  I have had probably a dozen
pocket computers of all sorts over the last dozen years.  Ironically
the very first one I ever had (an HP LX200) and my N810 were both very
close to being ideal.  And both because of the ability to run DOS or
Linux apps natively.

I pretty much bought the N810 to run orgmode.  On the LX200 I ran Lotus
Agenda.  Orgmode on the N810 is just like on any other computer except
the keyboard is (to be frank) pretty bad, but at least it's a physical
keyboard.  The positives way out weight the negatives.  For me the
positives are:
1) It's so small it's always with me.
2) I don't worry about syncing it because when I'm near one of my
laptops or desktops I just ssh into the N810 and run orgmode orgmode
remotely.

The negatives are:
1) The keyboard, when I have to use it in "away mode".
2) A secondary thing that is negative about the keyboard is that it
does not have an Alt key, a pipe symbol key, or a tab key.
3) The only other "negative" is that the colors aren't standard
compared to my other Linux or Windows boxes.

In summary, I REALLY  like this little computer.  It runs Linux, I have
more than enough storage (with an optional memory card), and it is a
"real" pocket sized computer.

Again - thanks Carsten for orgmode!

Thank Mick!  Useful feedback.  A couple of questions:

- How do you ssh to the Nokia?  That is, what type of connection,
  wired or wireless, do you use?

- Are you able to have Emacs via org-mode remind you of appointments?
  I assume not as that would mean having it "on" all the time?

- Which leads me to the final question: what is the battery life like?

I ssh via wireless, which is very nice as half the time my N810 is in
another room or in my backpack.

I have not tried having emacs give me reminders.  To be honest with you
I'm not sure how that would work.  I do know that if I forget and leave
my org files open on the N810 and try to open them again via ssh I get
a warning.

The battery life is pretty good for me.  I put it on a charger every
night, but it lasts all day.  I've only had a low battery twice and
both of those times were when I was really pounding it hard, like
watching streaming video or something.

I agree.  I'm waiting for these snapdragon (ARM) based "smartbook"
things to come out, which I plan to use basically as an "emacs device".
(something like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Wistron_Pursebook.jpg)

They promise fanless, all day battery operation.  How sweet would
that be?  I think the hostname for my first device of this
kind will be "carsten".  :-)

What I would like to see is a thumb-typable Debian box along the lines
of the old HP200LX and Zaurus SL-C3000.

Thumb-typable is key.

Has anyone tried using something like the HP Jornada 680? I remember
someone using one to take notes many years ago, and the keyboard
seemed usable and the device tiny. I've been thinking about picking
one up someday for org-type stuff.
