able to do is to have a remember template that allows me to write a
remind reminder to my reminders file.

This was part of James TD Smith's plan for rewriting the
org/remember code, but I do not know what the status of this is.

Currently, org/remember can only write to Org files.

that there is an emacs-based solution, but for now I just want to be
able to quickly write to my remind file. I've figured out that there

I can't get the org-remember template to write to a non-org-mode file.

these are my settings:

;; For remember
(setq org-directory "~/start/admin/org/")
(setq org-default-notes-file (concat org-directory "/tasks.org"))
(define-key global-map "\C-\M-r" 'org-remember)

(setq org-remember-templates
     '(("Task" ?t "* TODO %? %i\n" nil "Tasks")
        ("Idea" ?i "* %^{Title}\n %i\n %t" "ideas.org" "Ideas")
        ("Reading" ?r "* TODO %? %i\n %a" "readings.org" "Readings")
        ("Reminder" ?m "REM %^t AT %^{Time} DURATION %^{Duration} MSG %i\n"
