I don't really understand why people (mainly on the internet) take issue with people "stealing" topics. You don't own the copyright on covering something owned by someone else. I understand taking someone's writings/script as your own but if you do your own research it's very much valuable as new eyes and/or ears engage with the topic, which can further the collective knowledge on it.

To this effect: please make fossmendations of your own! You have 100% full and irrevocable permission to do so.

Hmmm, so after using emacs (spacemacs) for right about 2 months...haha, this shit is great. I wish I'd heard of spacemacs sooner. I've more or less stopped using other editors entirely.

Though I think i will stop short of the super hard core emacs users that use emacs for *everything*. I do not want an emacs based window manager...

But I'm having fun, and have started the first steps towards writing some packages.

Someone stop me before I elisp again...

Decided to stop whinging about @briar's UI/UX and start do something about it.

I'm replying to existing issues at the moment, because no-one likes the person who comes barging into an open source community creating a bunch of new issues without referencing old ones:
