I used to think I’d never need to know LISP. I was wrong.

At first, when I accidentally overwrote my Windows hard drive with Linux, I switched between Emacs and vi a lot. All I knew about Emacs was that it took a long time to start up. Then one day while learning PGP, I came across a newsgroup post about MailCrypt, which mentioned that it integrated seamlessly with Emacs MailUserAgents?, noting “You do use Emacs to read your mail, don’t you?” In fact, I didn’t, but I figured it would be worth trying, so I launched Rmail. That led to ViewMail (VM), and then Gnus.

Later on, I began using EmacsIRCClient, then CalendarMode with AppointmentMode, and now I’ve all but done away with my xterm with [[Eshell?]]. My X setup now consists of an Emacs window running full-screen under ratpoison, occasionally a web browser, and that’s all.

Ever since GNU Emacs 20.1 came out, I use Emacs. Before that I preferred XEmacs.

Stuff I've Made


Welcome to the wiki! Do you hang out on #wiki? – AlexSchroeder

Thanks, Alex! :) I’ll check the channel out.

Hah, I fixed [[rcirc-controls.el?]] and was about to paste the new code when I realized that you had done the very same fix yesterday. Awesome. – AlexSchroeder
