Sometimes some things are just so good that you have to shout about the fact that it’s good even though it does no-one any good.

Emacs is such a thing. It occurred to me today that I’d dearly love to write more for this blog, and one way that I might be able to do that would be if I could edit my posts in Emacs. One web-search later I’m reading about how trivial it is using weblogger and xml-rpc.

60 seconds after that I’m up and running, and writing this post. I didn’t even have to restart Emacs. That’s how awesome it is.

And to think that I used to berate people who used Emacs because I only used vi.

So now I’m praying to the saviour for redemption.
