Posting From Emacs

Written 22 May 2009

Today marks at least my 10th attempt at making Emacs my main editor. I’m trying harder this time however. For example, this entire post was composed and submitted directly from Emacs. A co-worker has been using Emacs exclusively for 1 year and I’m drawing on his knowledge and experience to improve my conversion. One element that was always off-putting in the past is my non-conventional typing skills. Largely self-taught, I don’t use the typical layout and maneuvers, which makes certain keystrokes Emacs is fond of rather annoying. However in the last 3 years I have done far more consistent typing which improved my speed, accuracy and flexibility.

I give myself one month :)
