org-mode integrates pretty well with diary mode, so I use the diary file
to keep my appointments, and org mode does a fantastic job of merging
the diary and org mode events (deadlines, scheduled etc) for me in the
*Org Agenda* buffer.

diary mode allows you to schedule recurring events. For example, we hold
a technical group meeting on the first friday of the month, so in my
~/diary file I have the following:

%%(diary-float t 5 1) 9:15 TG Meeting 

the diary manual will explain what's going on here, the point being that
you *can* schedule repeating events. This wiki here:


will help a lot.

I don't understand why. I can ssh onto our servers from home, run emacs
remotely, and it sees all the modifier keys.  I can use <SHIFT> <ALT>
and <CTRL> over my linux-linux ssh conection.  Are you running standard
UNIX/Linux machines on both sides of the connection ?  Are you running
emacs or Xemacs ? Frankly, I would think that not being able to use the
shift key is a bit of a showstopper when entering text anyway ?
