Edit with Emacs v1.7

It’s been a while so I released a new version of Edit with Emacs for Google Chrome(ium). To be honest most of the changes are to edit-server.el. The most major change is moving all the frame configuration options into a single edit-server-new-frame-alist which might cause confusion if people don’t read the change log which is: …

A few paragraphs

There are a number of potential topics for blog posts swirling in my brain which I’m not going to have time to write. I shall therefor attempt to address each on in paragraph form (Twitter style is a little too brief for me). We were at Maelstrom this weekend. We splashed out for a van …

On the nature of Planets

I upgraded my WordPress install yesterday which inadvertently broke the ’emacs’ tagged feed to Planet Emacsen. The aim of having a sub-feed from my blog was so I didn’t pollute the planet feed with my rambling life story which is probably of more interest(?) to my friends and family. They tend to read the other …

Digital Democracy

Our new Coalition Overlordstm have launched a new web-site to solicit feedback from the citizenry on what laws should be repealed/modified. This is a little more involved than the current option to sign e-Petitions at the number 10 website. The site supports commenting, tagging as well subscribing to feeds for each idea. I’m quite impressed …
