Okay, time for me to go to bed.

Much Emacs hackery and learning. A fair amount of Googling for

answers. And the confirmation of my summer class. Quite a

Emacs strokes — emacs

You know, I really should check out stroke mode under Emacs for sheer
coolness factor.

I’ll be teaching this summer!

Marco Changho informs me of my schedule as a new faculty member.

Ok, Sacha.  We'll have you aboard in the summer.  You will teach CS 21a and the
schedule is as I previously noted in my email Daily 9:00-10:30.


Which means I have to start preparing… fast!

Sampizcat, canna and kinput2

I was tracking down a Redhat Japanese language support problem for
someone on #linuxhelp. Sampizcat wanted to turn off the kana-kanji
conversion, but it wasn’t straightforward, so he or she is doing a
reinstall. Wish I could have helped more.

Aadisht Khanna (http://aadisht.net) and text summarization

Aadisht Khanna is working on text summarization for a school
project. Interesting area. You can drop him a line at
[email protected] if you know anything that might be useful. =)

The (Mis)adventures of Catastrophix continue… — cat

Emacs-wiki and httpd problem

yvonne on freenode#emacs reports a problem using emacs-wiki.el and
httpd.el; I thought I had reproduced it earlier, but it

works, and have been trying to figure out what’s wrong. No clue.

John Wiegley’s new homepage: http://www.emacswiki.org/johnw/

John Wiegley, the author of planner.el, remember.el and emacs-wiki.el (the only reasons why I can maintain this kind of website with very little effort) has moved from http://www.gci-net.com/users/j/johnw/WelcomePage.html to http://www.emacswiki.org/johnw/ .

Text input methods — wearable, input

Could a Palm user please check out
http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/atomik and see if it’s any good? If
so, I’d love an image or text file of the keyboard layout so that I
can try it out on the iPAQ. =)

Cool notebook — tech

A Slashdot comment on notebooks in Japan led me to http://panasonic.jp/pc/products/r1m/index.html (960g, a bit heavier than my PCG-U1′s 820g).
