org-mode configuration

I've been using org-mode for all of 2011 to track status, info, general notes related to work and some home projects. This year I've resolved to use it much more and take advantage of more of the features like tags, agenda, schedule dates, etc.

This is the org-mode bits of ~/.emacs

(global-set-key "\C-cl" 'org-store-link)
(global-set-key "\C-cc" 'org-capture)
(global-set-key "\C-ca" 'org-agenda)
(global-set-key "\C-cb" 'org-iswitchb)
; Clean View
(setq org-startup-indented 1)
; Org buffers only
(add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'turn-on-font-lock)
(setq org-directory "~/Dropbox/Notes/Org")
(setq org-mobile-directory "~/Dropbox/MobileOrg")
(setq org-mobile-inbox-for-pull "~/Dropbox/Notes/Org/")
(setq org-agenda-files (list
     (concat org-directory "/") ; work project 'AAAA' notes
     (concat org-directory "/") ; personal
     (concat org-directory "/") ; home
     (concat org-directory "/") ; reoccurring and one off
     (concat org-directory "/") ; bulk of work notes
     (concat org-directory "/") ; remove later

(setq inhibit-startup-screen t)
(put 'downcase-region 'disabled nil)
(put 'erase-buffer 'disabled nil)

For historical purposes my mini-talk from last year on orgmode at our LUG can be found here in the original org file I presented from or view the generated webpage manchlug-orgmode.html
