Ah if you want that functionality you need to alter your .emacs file to
include the line
(global-set-key "\A-z\M-\S\C-s\M-j\S\A\M-t" 'save-buffers-kill-emacs)

personnally I'll stick to C-xC-c but I'm weird like that (pah new fangled
menu thingies mice schmice if a keyboard was good enough for Christopher
Sholes its good enough for me...)

Now why would I want to read something as platform specific as that when I
can just set emacs as my default shell? (yes I actually did do that once,
its a lot better then you might imagine. No I'm not a nutjob honest)

Ahhh this is cool. I am on broadband so I can download
stupidly big files fine. :) As for the LISP book, I am
starting to think you are a complete nutjob. Surely
you should be reading the Linux Command Reference. ;)

I did see that earlier I htink. Is there a way to show
system info by the way? I want to check my clock speed
is what the guy advertised it as. About this Mac does
not show it unfortunatly - it just shows how much RAM
I have and my MacOSX version. I just went and checked
the version and it is 10.1.5.

Meta J Shift Alt Meta Shift-T to quit. ;)

Thanks for your info Chris. This is useful stuff. :)
