annoying org typing slowdowns

Published 2020-11-01, last edit 2020-12-30

This is a list of things I had to turn off to not fuck with my typing speed in emacs org-mode buffers (sometimes I am really sensitive to latency/breaks in typing). For context, I usually run things in one really big notes file.

You can see how I’m doing this here and here.

These were all super annoying to track down because I would have to wait until I was caffienated enough to be “sensitive” to the speed and then profile everything. But now the feeling is SUPER COMFY.
