The Lord of the Editors

or One Emacs to Rule Them All
by Raffael Cavallaro

Knuth’s Tex for the Math-kings of sigma, and pi,
    Unix vim for the Server-lords with their O’Reilly tomes,
  Word for Mortal Men doomed to die,
    Emacs from the Bearded One on his Gnu throne,
  In the land of Stallman where free software lies.
    One Emacs to rule them all. One Emacs to find them,
    One Emacs to take commands and to the keystrokes bind them,
  In the land of Stallman, where free software lies.


Reflection on 2003.10.30

Hacked on planner.el and planner-id.el. Practically rewrote
planner-id.el, in fact, as I wanted to use an alist of data instead.
Have gotten it mostly working.

Played an amusing real-time card game named “Falling.” The objective
of the game is simply to hit the ground _last_. Exciting play,
although the table can get fairly messy. Might be something fun for

Got a call from Richi. Yay! =)

Remembered reflection on holidays and
resolved to do something different.

Met Kris, Martin-Nix-Tala-Mog’s friend. Laid-back sort of person.
He’s interested in surfing.

Chatted with SuperLag from #linuxhelp. Warm and fuzzy feeling,
good karma. =)

Did well: met one new person in real life and talked to another more
on the Net.

Could be improved: procrastinated following up on unapplied ACM Lite

Have resolved to write a book Real Soon Now.
