It Begins

Well, it had to happen sooner or later: I've made up my mind to try blogging. No set topic or anything; I just want to see what I'd write if I had to write something every day.

And since a blog is just a web page, at bottom, I'm just going to type this stuff with XEmacs, my favorite version of Emacs, which Neal Stephenson describes as a thermonuclear word processor.

To brag about just one feature of Emacs among thousands: I'm editing this file, which lives on my Web site, just as if it were a normal file sitting here on my hard drive. Emacs knows it's somewhere way out there across the net, and that it has to be accessed by ftp, and it handles all that by itself, without having to bug me about it.

There's a "Made with XEmacs" web badge; maybe I should add it to this page.
