Emacs, my Wife and my Muse

Wait a minute...  Emacs is not my wife.  I'm spending too much time with Emacs.  If you used Emacs (or VIM for that matter, same thing) for more than a few years, then you know how frustrating it is to try to convince other people about the true genious that rests in your editor.  In 10 years of using Emacs I convinced many frieds to try it and some were quite successful and agreed that Emacs is "The Shit".  However, half a year later, they kept telling me how Emacs sucks and .Net studio rules.  Oh well.

A guide to quit smoking

I know it's uncommon for me to talk about my personal life.  Most bloggers do it, but to me it seems rather stupid.  Why would anyone, other than my friends and family, like to know what I ate today?  If there's one reason why I would write about myself, it's because I'd like to read what I wrote after years.  This is one of those moments; I just need to write this down.
