Blocks in Org Mode

I remember, when I first learned it, the Org Manual mentioning I could have code, quotes, poetry and sundry self structured blocks of text, where the text in that block would flow like I wanted it to. I could have indentation or line breaks as I pleased. And then I promptly forgot about it. The only thing I did remember were code blocks. And that I needed to do a #+begin_src and then a #+end_src and put my code in the middle....

Exclude Files and Folders From an Rsync Copy

One of those is a workflow, that lets me shoot text to a folder on my server which is then published (via a script) on the microblog....

Line Breaks on My Microblog

I use a (not quite) hidden blog to collect all sorts of bits and bobs and to (selectively and automatically) publish them to my fediverse or twitter accounts.
