The Emacs Tourette’s Syndrome
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything here. So, just to get back my “writing” spirit and please the gods of the blog world, here I am with something that many might find mildly funny.
Anyone who has used emacs enough would have automatically got into the habbit of typing C-x C-s, to save whatever it is that is in their buffer. But if you have used it as much as I’ve, then you would have gotten into the habbit of doing this so often, that you do it unconciously, whenever you are near any sort of keyboard. Infact I was totally oblivious to it untill a friend pointed it out.
The response is automatic, reflexive and almost uncontrollable, just like Tourette’s syndrome just for those who have used emacs – an Emacs Tourette’s Syndrome.
