Hi David,

I have two org-mode setups and of course they are different :/

At home I don't know what day of the week it is normally (honest!) and I
want to see the next 7 days so my week starts from today (or whatever
day I'm looking at).

I normally just look at today so my agenda remembers to display day view
since that is what I used last.  Looking at and planning my entire week
is something I normally due on Monday's during my weekly review.

For work my week runs Saturday - Friday and it's useful to see the week
starting from Saturday.  If I want to see the week view (at work)
hitting w brings up this week starting from last Saturday (showing the
week including the day I'm displaying -- which is almost always today).

At work I report my hours from Saturday through Friday.  I often want a
clock report of what I've worked on this week so I look at the week view
and hit R and I have my report.

Hopefully some of this description is useful and doesn't confuse you
more :).
