Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/24.3 (gnu/linux)
I accomplish this using Org-mode agenda for all my calendaring (highly
recommend it) and lines like the following in an agenda-loaded org file:
** 8:00-9:00 Ward Council Meeting: 2nd and 4th Sunday
<%%(diary-float t 0 2)>
<%%(diary-float t 0 4)>
Does that help? For me, probably 85% of my emacs usage is org-mode (planning,
note-taking, powerpoint/doc generation); it ships with emacs, so if you haven't
looked into it yet, I would strongly recommend it. They also have a mailing
list parallel to this one.
