A small mini series (three parts) on GNU Emacs; Klaatu tells you how to use it, when to use it and when not to, why you'd want to use it, and most of all - how to become a pro on it! Not a sales pitch for Emacs, just a harmless introduction. First try is free.

The rule of "emacs dinners" is you don't talk about "emacs dinners".
Great series Klaatu, I've been using emacs for a few years and I still learned some stuff.

Moar Emacs

Hey, thanks Scott! Had to go back a listen to the episode to get your dinner joke :-P

Emacs is pretty great and there seems to be no end to what it can do. I've been doing a lot of org-mode usage lately, and have been messing around with abbreviation-completion lately. Heck, SO many potential features. There probably could be an emacs-cast out there, although admittedly it would be a bit dry.

Happy hacking. and all that.
