    It's about time they fixed emacs! My C++ teacher was adamant on using emacs on his Mac for presentations, and we would usually end up spending half the class or more waiting for him to fix it. :banghead: Thankfully I'm not a computer engineer anymore :laugh:

    LOL! That guy pisses me off...I wish I had a radio show so I could complain about every name brand product I own on the air so the company will be forced to fix it for free.
