According to fsbot, the bot on #emacs:

From Nath on the emacspeak mailing list:
You can try C-e n which will read you the text until you stop the speech
by pressing C-e s but the cursor will stay at the position it was just
before you run the command. Sorry I don’t know the command which will
cause the cursor to move in the same time the text is read.

I know a hacker named Eric,
Who is certainly not geek generic
He is better than me
At music and C
And in graphics and games he’s demonic.
From Mike S. Lacanilao on PLUG:
this only reminds me that we filipino dont really like to have or at
least to see a tagalized version of international apps..
isn’t good to have this recognition for our country..
I think it’s nice, like the way I think it’s nice that cellphones come
with Filipino prompts and Filipino sections in their manuals. I know a
number of people who set their phones to the Filipino interface. I
think it’s nice to have Filipino as a choice on ATMs. I think it’s
nice that train announcements are done in English and Filipino.
But personally, I prefer the English terms because that’s what I
started out with, at least for technical things. I use a cellphone,
not a selpon. I’d rather see “Settings saved.” than “Na-save na ang
settings mo.” or something like that. <shrug>
I’m not against the Filipino language. If having localized interfaces
means that more people will feel comfortable on the Net, then well and
Freaked someone out with my data collection capabilities. ;)
sachac: you know so much about me! shapr: Whoops. ;) EmacsChannelDemographics, plus #emacs shapr: I have notes on other people too. * sachac laughs. how did you know I'm both a Finnish and Swedish resident? * shapr is impressed. You must have a superior memory. shapr: BBDB. ;) wow shapr: I also know you've played around with IPv6... shapr: ... #symbian #widian #twisted @#emacs #haskell #orkut, last time I peeked... * sachac laughs. Data collection. I can delete it from my BBDB if you want, but it's kinda cute knowing this trivia. I should learn how to use BBDB how do you know that? ;-) * shapr can guess impressive. no, I don't mind at all. It's nice to know someone outside my direct family is interested enough to record that info about me :-) * shapr feels ego swell anyways, last I remember (without BBDB) you were doing a graduate degree, is that still true? has the FSF lured you away from your secret tropical hideaway to the land of big money for open source coders? * shapr googles for sachac bbdb? big brother data base shapr: Actually, this started from our conversation about Dvorak in #emacs (don't remember when, though) when we noticed the high proportion of Dvorak users among Emacs users. it's written in elisp o_O? Peacimowen: A contact manager for Emacs. you know emacs? I know of emacs Peacimowen: I've also used it to simulate bot-like behavior, though. shapr: I took a few units toward an MA Education after finishing my BS CS, but as CS Ed isn't really a research area here, I'm eyeing schools in Australia (very active in CS Ed conferences). sachac: have you seen my "I am not a koala" kinesis remapping? shapr: ERC hooked into BBDB, so when I /whois, it captures as much information as I can. remapping originally suggested by kensanata, he of much brain. I've never touched emacs.. I just know it exists. Peacimowen: it is very powerful shapr: As it can, that is. No, I haven't seen your kinesis remapping... Peacimowen: It's really cool.
