6. gnu.emacs.sources/tex-skak.el: a way to typeset chess moves and board diagrams in LaTeX

Categories: EmacsTips#5 -- Permalink

This is a special mode for editing <nop>LaTeX files which use the skak package.

\usepackage{skak} is a beautiful way to typeset chess moves and board diagrams in <nop>LaTeX. This file implements a special editing mode for such documents ontop of the AUC TeX and chess.el packages. Both packages are very flexible and extensible. This file can be considered glue code to unify the power of both packages.

Warning: freshman code ahead... =)

Jino stood up to pass his paper. Miguel Arguelles pounded his desk in annoyance, and everybody laughed. Apparently, he was trying to finish first.

couldn't help but laugh when I saw the date on that Dilbert strip forwarded to you by Eric. didn't occur to me that you'd fit the description of the problem co-worker Dilbert gave the first time I read it. =)

Ran across http://freebooks.by.ru/view/EmacsIn24h/emacs173.htm from google:gnus+nntp+mail+source+example . Looks like a pretty good resource.


1. Windows to Linux roadmap

Categories: None -- Permalink

"You're moving from Windows to Linux. You've decided you want the stability, flexibility, and cost savings of Linux, but you have many questions in your head. Isn't Linux like Unix? Isn't Unix hard? Where do you begin to make sense of all of this? Is there a map you can follow?

This roadmap is designed to help you take the experience and knowledge that you already have in computing and redirect it to working in Linux. It's not the only reference you'll ever need, but it will help you get past some of your first obstacles and adjust to a new and, I think, exciting approach to computing. As you follow this roadmap, you'll discover many new resources to help you learn, troubleshoot, and manage Linux."
