The picture is ~20 years old. To age-correct this photo, color the beard and remaining hair a distinguished silver;-) .

I have been using Emacs since Gossling's out of CMU -- more than half of my life. I have gone from having vi/ed keys in my hind brain, to confusion, to Emacs bindings of my own, to learning the standard ones, to xemacs, to aquamacs, back to gnu version (15), on to version 25, and I now am starting to forget which trigger to use in my brain to do which tasks.

I have wrapped advice around next-page and previous-page to remember from whence I was when I typed ^V instead of ^Y to insert. (If the last command was ^V, then <esc>-v returns to exactly where I came from.) This implements the much hoped for dual of the goto as a come-from ;)

My 1984 .emacs has grown and shrunk a lot; the base .emacs is currently 5 KLOC.
