Bad luck

This week I wasn’t really fun. I first lost my video card — I now have a beautiful snow display. Then, I burned a hard drive in an attempt to access some of my data (luckily, it was my younger brother’s hard drive with his Windows installation). However, it won’t whine about it in a blog post; this isn’t my style.

I just wanted to notice the users of my Emacs package that I won’t be able to update it, until I get my system back on.

Don’t use fake emails

<p>this is the error I get when trying to get your repositories</p>


<p>Please help</p>

I just got this comment, on my post Pretty Emacs. The error message was probably truncated by the HTML filter of WordPress. Unfortunately, when I tried to send an email to the author of this comment, I received a delivery error which told me that the author’s email address didn’t exist. So, I am stuck with a help request from a ghost.

I really care about the errors you get with the packages in my repository. If you stumble on a bug in one of my packages, it is my fault. And it is my responsibility to fix it. So please, don’t fake your email address when you leave a comment.

Daily links posting, not for me.

I disabled the daily links posting feature of I tried it, and I don’t like it. Posting links automatically on my blog doesn’t feel right to me. If I want to share a link, I will do it myself.
