My list is rather pedestrian at the moment... but I think I'm going to
benefit from this exercise.

(setq org-hide-leading-stars t)
(setq org-agenda-files (list dan-org-dir))
(setq org-agenda-start-on-weekday nil)
(setq org-agenda-ndays 30)
(setq org-todo-keywords '((sequence "TODO" "STARTED" "|" "DONE"
"DEFERRED"))) 
(setq org-deadline-warning-days 7)
(setq org-default-notes-file dan-org-file)
(setq org-remember-templates
      '(
        ("computing" ?c "* TODO %?\n  %i" dan-org-file "computing")
        ("emacs" ?e "* TODO %?\n  %i" dan-org-file "emacs")
        ("event" ?d "* %?\n%^T\n%i" dan-org-file "events")
	("music" ?m "* %?\n %i" dan-org-file "music")
	("org" ?o "* TODO %?\n  %i" dan-org-file "org")
	("reading" ?r "* %?\n %i" dan-org-file "reading")
	("task" ?t "* TODO %?\n  %i" dan-org-file "tasks")
	("work" ?w "* TODO %?\n  %i" dan-org-file "projects")
	))
