me 2:23 PM Maybe http://emacswiki.org/emacs/MultipleSMTPAccounts ?
Magnus Henoch 2:24 PM I mashed some of those together into this monster: link (github.com)
Mond Beton 2:25 PM org mode is new
Rogelio Zarate 2:26 PM Just started with emacs

Paul Harper 2:41 PM Not sure if this might help. Setting up Emacs key mappings on Windows Outlook link (blogs.adobe.com)
me 2:42 PM http://emacsblog.org/2007/05/10/emacs-key-bindings-in-windows/ suggests XKeymacs, but I don’t know if it will work with recent versions of Windows. http://www.cam.hi-ho.ne.jp/oishi/indexen.html
Mond Beton 2:44 PM thank you
Rogelio Zarate 2:48 PM Too many opinions on how to do things, example keybing on emacs/os x
me 2:50 PM link (emacs.stackexchange.com) may be helpful if you want it to reuse an existing Emacs if possible
Daniel Gopar 2:58 PM https://github.com/gopar/.emacs.d/blob/master/init.el#L442
Paul Harper 2:59 PM Something for beginners like me. A course in research tools which includes some clear videos on using Emacs. Kurt Schwehr put the course on YouTube (linked in note) and the course is in org mode. The Course itself is GIS focused. You can download the whole thing with Mercurial. Instructions on the page. I found it very helpful when I started. http://vislab-ccom.unh.edu/~schwehr/rt/
Philip Stark 3:02 PM What’s GIS?
me 3:03 PM Phil: Hmm, something like http://emacs.stackexchange.com/questions/608/evil-map-keybindings-the-vim-way using tags?
Philip Stark 3:05 PM https://www.gnu.org/software/global/
Philip Stark 3:07 PM http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/ggtags.html
Daniel Gopar 3:09 PM so im learning elisp. Does elisp have any ways of creating private/public variables? or is everything exposed once you run the require command on the file?

Rogelio Zarate 3:14 PM How do you handle projects, like in Sublime, do you use Projectile or Perspective?

Rogelio Zarate 3:19 PM Keeping just one list sounds like the correct approach. Great tip.

    Hi Sasha, have you considered to invite Chen Bing (another Emacs master living in Sydney) to one session of Emacs Hangout? He has also been mentioned by Steve Purcell in his session.
