Re: Pressing matters

I never thought about it, but I wonder if it's partly all the institutions that operate on non-calendar fiscal years.

I think replacing every year makes sense, because otherwise you have to remember to make every single change in the overlap period twice, whether addition, edit, or deletion.

They sell calendars on the academic year and fiscal years.

But your second paragraph is off, because with that option there is no overlap - you have to have two calendars available, but you don't have to double-record anything.

If you like the feel of a physical calendar but are struggling with the inefficiencies of a paper calendar, why not just write your appointments on your phone with a sharpie?

There's no uniform "fiscal year" - maybe there are some standards depending on industry, but it can vary a lot. Didn't some big financial firm change their fiscal year during the crisis so as to have a couple of months of limbo they could hide losses in?

Anyway, I don't think I follow your reasoning in 2.2, but if it helps to clarify, what I mean is with a 15-16 calendar, during 2015 put 2016 entries in its second year, then, at the beginning of 2016, transfer everything there to the first year of the new 16-17 calendar. That way you never have two calendars to consult across, and you only have to do one round of copying.

Business cards can be put on your phone. You can even just take a photo of one and it will automatically be added to your contacts.

But, yes, electronic calendars are way better. Simply being able to search for things is a huge improvement. Also. It's in your pocket when you need it.

We have projects with four different fiscal/planning years- calendar year, June-May (government, of course, has to be the one that can't even align with a goddamn quarter), July-June, and Oct-Sept.
If you buy two year calendars every year, then don't you have to copy everything from the second year to your new two year calendar? That seems annoying and likely to cause you to miss something.

I basically never kept a paper calendar, then I got a phone.

Come to think of it, I did keep an e-calendar for several years before getting a phone. But for ~6 years after college, I mostly kept track of appointments and such in my head.

Even now, I need the calendar as much for intrafamily scheduling as for remembering appointments.

I like Inbox, precisely (though not only) because I like getting emails out of my face but not deleting them permanently. I basically never delete emails, and usually regret it when I do unless they're actual spam.

Not sure why SP's emails are being archived when they're only being read on the phone. The standard behaviour in Inbox is only to archive when click on the tick mark. Reading and then exiting the email doesn't do anything but mark it as read. Maybe you turned on an archive when read setting? But I can't find such a thing in the ordinary settings, so you'd have to have manually created a filter to do it.

A proper paper calendar will have a couple of pages at the end for appointments in the following year, at a really, really zoomed out level, like three months per page. These are the best calendars / day planners, and I will brook no dissent on that point.

If we're just asking things, should I buy a pair of overalls? I've never had any and there are several kinds for sale at Target, which means I wouldn't have to invest much to try.

My dad's overalls from wartime service in the RCN were my first pair. He'd worn them when doing heavy work when I was a little boy. I wore them years later working on my car.

They fell apart because they were then thirty years old. The ones I replaced them with, which I'd wear doing street repairs on my VW in Hyde Park would be considerably older now.

Definitely get them. They protect your clothes and put you in a different frame of mind.

I suspect Idp in 53 is referring to what I would normally call coveralls. In my dialect, coveralls are what mechanics wear, and they have sleeves and cover all of your clothes. Overalls are what children, extras on Hee Haw, and presumably actual farmers at some point in the past wear, and they are pants leading up to a bib with shoulder straps, exposing the shoulders and shirtsleeves (or mostly naked upper body, as JMcQ suggests).

I had overalls that I loved terribly terribly much, in college. They were blue and white pinstriped Carhartts, like 8 sizes too big for me, that a friend gave me for some unknown reason.

Also in college, I had a life-sized, distressingly realistic fake person that I made. He had leather skin and white fake fur for hair. His name was Art and he mostly sat around in my car.

Then somebody broke in to my car. They stole my ski rack, and Art. Art was wearing my overalls and a really good pair of cowboy boots. I never saw any of them again. Altogether a devastating loss.

There's not much plain about org-mode.

Was this paper mentioned here before? My 30 second search of the archives didn't turn it up, but I'm pretty sure it was recently mentioned.

The abstract of that paper sounds interesting! It's a relief to be told that I'm not unusual in how context-dependent my 'core network' has been.

I had a dream that while following some traces of vandalism (I think they were chalking WEEZEE everywhere, with arrrows) I found E. Messily's stolen Art and snagged him muself and was working on places to hide him securely in cas the original thieves came back when I woke up. Clearly he is inspiring!

You always wake up before you hit the ground/get attacked by the original thieves.

I used to have such vivid dreams when I was quitting smoking and wore a nicotine patch. Especially if I forgot to take the patch off before going to bed.

Before I stopped using snuff, I kept having dreams about my teeth falling out. It's why I stopped using snuff.

I heart Art.

Okay, Thorn's dream is a great idea. Everyone be on the lookout. He was last seen in Portland in early 1999.

He's probably working as a barista now.

Art thieves, stealing Art and reselling it at fancy auctionhouses.
