Arse. Caught out again by the linuxism I have of the PCMCIA card not sleeping
quite so nicely as Suse. Sleep and my network and modem are dead on awake unless (I think)

The double setups of Darwin vs Aqua & NeXT and X vs Aqua & The Finder.

It seems terribly eager to dial up my isp - not a bad thing in itself, but costly at the mo' till I get the adsl. So it gets unplugged from the line at night because I don't trust it on its own not to, e.g. auto start Quicktime - the 'Midnight Movie' perhaps - which in turn would decide it needed a 30MB upgrade.
It may be eager to dial, but its also just as eager not to stay on line once its there. Three times in three hours it hung up last night. Linux didn't do that, honestly.

A working and usable aqua + finder emacs. Miles better than in a terminal and just as easy to use as textedit for day to day stuff. available here. Comes prebuilt as one of those scary name.app directory (shell) application (finder) things which you can copy to /Applications. This could well alleviate the need for X. Here's a screenshot (smaller) showing its prettiness. Also happens to be the quickest loading emacs I've seen :-).
It defaults to // for file access, to which I have write access as Admin / member of admin group. This - write access - not the default path - is EBW.
Hopefully removing it with

Just resorted to creating a file called 'hash' in my home directory then using C-x i to insert a # from that file cos the emacs won't get option-3. This because of the line
libexpat won't compile so no XML::Parser so back to straight perl. The error

This emacs also works with color themes, which give some very pleasant combinations for foreground and background text colours as well as syntax/ mode-line / markup colours.
