About Me

  • RealName=Greg Scott
  • Coastal Texas Anarchist MicroNation
  • Gnu Emacs user, currently working in 23.4 and 24.0.94.1 as of 2012-03-27
  • Emacs user for 15 years, but seem to be relearning all the time because of forgetting what I haven't used recently
  • spend 99% of PC time in either Emacs or Chrome
  • former Linux user (from scratch, Slackware up to 9.1). Recent distros don't support all hardware on my 14 year old PC, and have gotten too bloated, so:
  • currently on Windows XP, which is faster on my old PC than recent Linux distros
  • Topics I'm currently trying to get working on Windows XP that worked on Linux:
    • spell check (aspell or hunspell)
    • offline dictionary lookup (edict, kanjidic)
  • Topics that are not OS-specific that I want to learn more about:
    • specifying a different font for various Unicode ranges
    • new features in version 24 (it handles RTL languages like Hebrew, Arabic!, shows the hex code for non-displaying glyphs instead of the empty block, adds rectangle-number-lines C-x r N)
    • old modes I've forgotten through disuse, new modes
    • ditto for tips and tricks
    • testing mediawiki.el v.2.2.2

Emacs version

  • GNU Emacs 24.0.94.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) as of 2012-03.
  • 20+ years on Unix platforms, Linux
  • Most recently switched to Windows XP as it makes my 14 year old PC run faster (Linux is getting bloated)
