A significant part of the world population will be watching the Football World
Cup in South-Africa this month. For people who use
org-mode to organize
their lives, find the schedule of all the games in this message I sent to the
org-mode mailing list.
In order to have the games show up in your agenda, make sure the file is in
org-agenda-files. If needed, you could add it with something like in
(add-to-list 'org-agenda-files "~/org/fifa-worldcup-2010.org")
One small issue with the schedule is that it use the South-African times, and there is no automatic way to adjust times for the local time zone. As a work-around, Juan Pechiar provided the following function which makes it easy to update all org-timestamps in a file:
(defun uphours (n) "update all timestamps n hours" (interactive "nAdd hours: ") (save-excursion (goto-char (point-min)) (while (re-search-forward "[[<]" nil t) (when (org-at-timestamp-p t) (org-timestamp-change n 'hour) ))))
Evaluate this function (in emacs, put your cursor after the last ")"), then
C-x C-e. After that, you can go to the file with the world cup
schedule, and give an
M-x uphours, provide the offset for your timezone,
compare to South-African time (positive or negative).
