Subject: New Screencast: Setting Up Org-mode for Windows
Date: Fri, 5 Nov 2010 16:52:05 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20101105215205.GH4528@x201> (raw)

I've just posted a new thirty minute screencast on setting up Org-mode
in Windows to Vimeo.


Included are:

 - Downloading and configuring Emacs for Windows
 - Downloading and installing the latest Org-mode
 - Setting up a working agenda
 - Setting up capture for the agenda
 - Windows native popup reminders from Agenda entries
 - Setting up and use of one touch timestamps

Under my sig are the snippets I used in the video.
