From: Casey West Date: 17:31 on 23 Aug 2005 Subject: Apple's Address Book Disappoints <p> I meet a lot of people and I'm trying to get into the habit of writing down some information about them. Things like phone numbers and names, and maybe how I met them or why I met them. Apple's Address Book application is great for that. But it falls short in one very important area. I can't store a photo! </p> <p> I need a visual aid to remember lots of people. Photos are perfect for that, as it turns out, and address books should store that information too. I need to send this to hates-software... </p> <p> I wonder if hates-software will junk up the HTML in this post I need for my journal... now do I hate MT or Siesta, or is my preemptive hate all for not? </p>
From: Casey West Date: 17:09 on 14 Aug 2003 Subject: Emacs cperl-mode Dude, seriously, when I tell you I want backspace to delete characters preceding the cursor I bloody well mean it! Why then, *WHY*, do you insist on doing nothing useful when I hit backspace when not running under X? You can get it right under X, and oh so horribly wrong otherwise. I don't want the help when I hit backspace I want the frelling character to disappear. I've easily tried every configuration option known to man, woman, and beast. There is no answer. All further proposed answers will be wrong; especially the ones that insist I should stop using the broken emacs mode, or emacs all together. There is no solution, we are at an impasse. Go screw, cperl-mode.

I know what you're going to say, they can be remapped in 10.3 Terminal.app. Well no, I've tried it, and it doesn't work. Of all things, you have to use Cmd-P and Cmd-N! This! Is! BROKEN!
