    Nice way to lose credibility.  Heaven forbid you'd actually have to *READ*
something.  Lemme ask you this, what're you doing here, reading this

    Uh-huh.  So, what're the instructions to boot to Emacs.  Don't worry,
unlike you I'm perfectly willing to accept a pointer to something I'd have to
read.  Of course knowing full well ya can't boot a computer to Emacs since it
isn't an OS might have something to do with that.  I'd say your credibility's
pretty much shot.  But then that's par for course coming from am Emacs zealot.
