gnus configuration & reading imap mail

I tried using gnus to read imap mail yesterday and found it a very different experience than MUAs that are web based or local.

Although I’v had some success with mail filters in Mozilla Thunderbird, I’m hoping I can find or create filtering scripts in gnus using emacs lisp.

Using WordPress – Do I use .COM or .ORG ?


I have been using wordpress for a couple of months as of 2012-11-25 and am only beginning to be comfortable using it. I made my first blog post in 2008-05-01 and later said “So What?”. I really didn’t have anything to say, and I didn’t understand the blogging concept so I didn’t post until agin this year (2012).

I now know what I want to use a blog for, but I still can’t do what I want.


The org2blog package in emacs has been very helpful to me. It puts the whole blogging experience into the comfortable lisp-based emacs environment where I do most of my work. I’ve been using org-mode for years and even wrote extentions to outline mode before org-mode came out.

I’m still learning how to use org2blog effectively, but already I plan to use org-mode files as the foundation for my blogging and page posts in wordpress.


I have an account on wordpress.com because it is free, and I’m still learning. If I find limitations in wordpress.com I can’t work around, I will investigate self hosting.

First Post Using org2blog and org-mode

I’m considering using org2blog for worpress editing.

This is the first post created in emacs org-mode and posted automatically to WordPress.

I first posted it to another blog then moved it to this one. How cool is that, considering I stayed in emacs to move the post.
