You're welcome.  But please use plain-text email for the mailing list.

A paper copy is great - makes good free-time reading.

But if you have Emacs then you most likely have its manuals built in, as well.
They are a large part of what makes Emacs "the self-documenting...editor".  Try
`C-h i' and see if you don't have a menu of manuals to choose from, including
`Emacs' and `Elisp'.

Learning to ask Emacs itself will greatly help your Emacs experience and
learning.  Not just the manuals, but the tutorial and the help keys (`C-h C-h',
to start).

;-) It's not a bad life.

Don't feel sorry for the others.  They won't know what they're missing.

Many Emacs users use it for email and calendar.  Others of us don't.
