My hands are complaining again. I'm not sure what exactly they are complaining about: using my mouse, using emacs' key sequences, or just being at the keyboard for so long.
I've tried a few things. One was to make an .Xmodmap file and map my PC keyboard to a more SUN keyboard (swap the Caps Lock and Ctrl keys). That worked for a bit until I had to use another computer. So lately I've just remapped my most commonly used emacs commands to the function keys. I have twelve of them, so I might as well use them.
Nothing more on the GNOME front. Still working on docs, still working on omf's and the like.
