No, like I said, I'm not going to try it again. I don't remember
what broke several years back. I mentioned the example with big
files and the initialization, and the installation. I don't care
if that's Emacs "fault" or not because I don't reason like that -
I care only what *is*, and what *is not*.

OK. Actually I never searched that place actively but probably
ended up there tons of time indirectly from Google.

I'm going to customize *everything* down to the last
detail. Emacs, the shell, the mail client, the web browser, even
the kernel process scheduler, when I get there! That's the whole
point with everything I do with computing. This is how I
communicate with technology - because that's who I am.
