Yes, it would be great, but "Google Voice is not available in your country". It's US only.

comment Locate All Emacs Autosaves and Backups in one folder
Too much magic. Only customizing backup-directory-alist's value is needed. Type M-x customize-variable backup-directory-alist and set to the preferred "catchall" directory. No need for dotemacs editing.

It's also a working solution, since df displaying the free disk space on mounted file systems showing their device name as well.

comment How can I find what /dev my DVD-drive is?
For me, the disk identifier is the volume label (MyDisk), which is the same as the mount point under /mnt, and not the device name under /dev, which is /dev/disk2.

@Josh: yes, I can share those devices too, but they do not appear in others' Finder. If I share a regular folder, it does appear.

comment Change the default Google search domain
@Peter Mortensen: yes, it's cookie based. If you install a new Firefox search plugin, it will only effect a specific browser (a Firefox profile, to be precise).

comment In emacs how can I keep many files open at once?
What's your goal? Opening a bunch of files at once? Or managing lots of already opened files?
