+** Under X11 Keep a window with the current agenda items at all time
+I struggle to keep (in emacs) a window with the agenda at all times.
+For a long time I have wanted a sticky window that keeps this
+information, and then use my window manager to place it and remove its
+decorations (I can also force its placement in the stack: top always,
+for example).
+I wrote a small program in qt that simply monitors an HTML file and
+displays it. Nothing more. It does the work for me, and maybe somebody
+else will find it useful. It relies on exporting the agenda as HTML
+every time the org file is saved, and then this little program
+displays the html file. The window manager is responsible of removing
+decorations, making it sticky, and placing it in same place always.
+Here is a screenshot (see window to the bottom right). The decorations
+are removed by the window manager:
+Here is the code. As I said, very, very simple, but maybe somebody will
+find if useful.
