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. Thanks

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.
