org-mode use

I have begun listening to the HPR podcasts while at work.

I've been using Linux for ten years or so and as a result of everyones podcasts I am considering making a recording and sending it in. More on that later.

This message is to comment on this podcast. As usual, I found all the podcast very interesting. Of great interest was the conversation regarding org-mode and it's use by someone doing AutoCAD work and the manner in which he kept notes and tables relating to his daily job. This caught my attention because I use (not right now, anyway) to work in a related design field. Everyday I used an expensive proprietary cad design program designing kitchen and bathrooms, very similar to AutoCAD. So it was very easy for me to relate to his work use descriptions.

Thanks for another GREAT podcast.

Thanks for listening.

Robert, thanks for listening. I'm glad that people are enjoying listening to our big recording, and it was great that these guys brought such great and helpful content. It's great fun for me knowing that other people are listening to, and enjoying what we did.
