Thanks for creating this, Russell.  It's great!

I've already set my system up per John Wiegley's tutorial.  I didn't
appreciate Org until I started to use capture, so I'm glad you introduced it
early on.  And I like how you pointed out org-capture-templates.  I'm at the
point where I'm changing some settings, so it's nice to see where things are

Also neat is the idea of notification.  But I wonder if some folks might
have VBS disabled.  For them, I'd recommend using the Net Send command.  Net
Send can also broadcast to multiple users on a domain, which may (or may
not) be a nice thing.  I can imagine an IT person using Org-mode with Net
Send to notify everyone about a server reboot.

Some other things that are new to me:
	* AddPM (never used it)
	* -f switch to run Lisp and the shortcut to Agenda
	* latest version is now 7.3
	* Timestamps & Workflow
	* C-c [
	* lots more

Invoking Customize is a nice way to establish the .emacs.  But I would've
mentioned C-x C-f ~/.e<TAB> after the second customization, though. :)

All the best!

Oh, BTW, is there a tutorial on how to set up a Worg account for Windows
