Man. I really rock at using emacs. I mean this is not in and of itself a shock to me. I pride myself on my knowledge of my editor. I'd warrant I am easily one of the most knowledgable people around about the use of emacs. I've never spent much time digging around in modifying it beyond trivial user level customizations, but if you want to know how to use anything in the scope of the default config of (x)emacs I either know how to do it or I know where to find out.

The reason this has suddenly struck me is not arrogance. The issue is that I am realizing just how much ass I kick at using *emacs because it has recently come my attention just how much comparitive ass I SUCK at using vi. :) "For the love of god! I just want to cut and paste! This used to be so easy! ::sobs::" So much power, and I have to do a doc lookup every time I want to flick and wiggle. Sad, really. :)

Thank god I decided to use viper and not vanilla vi as a training ground. At least this way I have somewhere to turn in my time of need...

In other news...I'm going to see an electronic opera tonight. Sounds very cool. Update to follow...
