Living a happy life under org-mode, emacs.

comment internet connection interrupted and Limited
Alternatively, another laptop using the same wireless network painlessly — or the same computer having the same problem with another wireless network — would indicate it's the laptop in itself that causes the problem. What to do then ?

comment Compiling the Linux kernel, how much size is needed?
The problem is with the space being used while compiling, not unpacking, methinks.

comment How to source key translations in emacs?
The search didn't give me results, as I search for C-x <left> in simple.el. As for rebinding, yes, binding the uppercase one scraps the translation, but it's important for my question to keep the lowercase binding intact (but you could edit your answer to take that into account).

comment How to have emacs count an increment of words?
Ok so tonight became yet another asap, but here's the update :·) Thanks a lot for your ideas. Oh, and my elisp got a lot better tonight thanks to that =)

comment How to have emacs count an increment of words?
I'll read into more detail tonight, but that'll go with free text in org-mode, LaTeX sequences won't be an issue for now. Moreover, once the “update” part is managed, I guess it should be easy to replace wc by some count-true-words-lost-in-markup function for any markup language, for which I saw a few answers already existed.

That's the code of the function definition, not the code that binds the key. Also you're unbinding the lower-case key, which I want to stay as it is, I just want to overrule the upper-case one.

comment Grouping Emacs Buffers
As a sign of my disaprovement of the seemingly-common-in-the-parts-of-SU-I-frequent behaviour of only accepting answers once they fit perfectly into one's setup (like there's an "after-sales service" to provide with answers to be accepted), I'll wait till this interesting question has an accepted answer to upvote it.

comment Grouping Emacs Buffers
It's definitely a nice tool, but I wouldn't advice it for this question, as that won't do for many buffers, and any group is very easy to lose whenever anything does a C-x 1. Basically, it's all about display, there is no underlying stored state, afaik.

comment How can I browse the file system from within Emacs and access often needed directories?
I have no idea, sorry. I'm suggesting to recreate the shortcuts within emacs, essentially. With bookmarks, it would be quite easy : from windows, open all these important files in many emacs windows, and for each, bookmark (C-x r m if you don't rebind it) and close it, and voilà, you have all your bookmarks in emacs.

comment How to alias keybindings in emacs?
I'm not sure why you're mentionning prefixes, but this works, and the hook idea is interesting (even though i'm more familiar with knowing how keymaps are called). I donk know much about macros, the bright side being I therefore don't care (I mean, if that's the C-x ( / C-x ) thing, mapping constructs based on them to other bindings seems very deviant to me >_<). Are you running in problems with f1 to f4 and f10 because they're already bound, sometimes later defined than your own definition, by any chance ?

comment How can I permanently delete messages from gmail?
+1 for an answer that should work. @vy32, you may consider fetching a child of 5 to click-delete through 300 pages.

comment Deleting a directory in emacs' dired mode
And with my version of emacs, with my personnal settings I don't remember tweaking about this, it just asks me if I (really) want to recursively delete the directory, and then proceeds.

Interesting trick, didn't know about pressing return when in i-search :·)

comment Why are there so many files in directory /etc/share?
I'd send that to Unix&Linux, personally. (And I'm interested so know the answer.)

comment Emacs 23.2.1 .emacs file permission
These should be ls -al since .emacs is a hidden file (name starts with a dot).

comment How to source key translations in emacs?
Thanks. Does that mean C-B would be bad practice, or is just for, say, C-S-s and M-S-m, to distinguish them from Control-Shift-forgot-the-letter and so ? Now that I took it apart it looks oh so very much like a second question… Dunno if it deserves posting.
