Hi Stefan,

Thanks for the tips. Most already done.

Yes I've followed the initial instructions and love that emacs knows 
modes based on file extension and/or content.

I use this:

eee() { if [ ! -e "$@" ]; then touch "$@"; fi; /sw/bin/launch -m -a Aquamacs "$@"; }

I also have copied Aquamacs.app, renamed it OrgMode.app, and have 
the unicorn as the icon. I'm a bit stuck on the last step you

I don't need it to distribute it to 3rd parties, but I'm not opposed 
to setting it up like that. What files should I put in the 
directory? And what contents? And how do I get emacs to auto-load 
them? I'm still figuring out a workflow so please let me know if 
this makes sense, but I'm picturing something like this:

* I launch my OrgMode.app

* It opens and (via its internal site-lisp magic) loads 

* index.org is a file I'll maintain manually that links to my other 
org files so I can access them using the inter-linking ability in 

* If something like index.org can be automated that would be OK, but 
I don't mind maintaning it as my meta-org file. Perhaps based on 
something like I have now in my .emacs:

(setq org-agenda-files (list "~/Dropbox/org/foo.org"
