2,469 Thanks · I just stuck my head in­to my on­go­ing-related email fold­er to look some­thing up, and I no­ticed a cou­ple of things. So far, there are 2,469 mes­sages there, go­ing back to Fe­bru­ary 2003. Which is sub­stan­tial­ly in ex­cess of one per on­go­ing frag­men­t. For all the­se, thank you, they have en­riched my life. The sec­ond thing is that on­ly about two-thirds of them are marked “replied-to”, and that’s not very po­lite, is it? A small hand­ful of those are of­fen­sive, or peo­ple I choose not to deal with; a few more are pieces of an ex­tend­ed di­a­logue that re­quired no an­swer. But most of the unreplied-to are peo­ple who wrote when I was just re­al busy, or sent me a note say­ing “look at this”, and what­ev­er it was lan­guished in a brows­er tab, maybe for days, till I got around to look­ing, and then for­got the con­nec­tion. So, to any­one who’s writ­ten me and not heard back, sor­ry ’bout that, and I do ap­pre­ci­ate the notes.

We must have hit some sort of a tip­ping point, and there are a whole lot of peo­ple work­ing on the prob­lem; the re­sult is that life is get­ting bet­ter and bet­ter for the Emacs tribe. This piece opens with a brief ser­mon on why, if you’re not al­ready us­ing Emac­s, you might want to check it out; and then sur­veys the state of play and the mul­ti­ple in­ter­est­ing emac­ses that are out there ...
