LOL , I have come across this quote somewhere .

Mu , this time you came up with something that i am not aware of and
thank you for that . I liked dunnet , i will explore when I have time .
When I hit "M-x zone" , I first thought something had gone wrong with
emacs , then after I hit some random navigation key-combination
everything reverted back to normal . Instead of 'zone' mode I would like
to call it as 'distortion' mode , atleast this is more verbose .

PDF in emacs , that's great , but is it possible to view PDFs in emacs
if emacs is run in commandline ( I noramally prefer running emacs in
commandline) .
