Hi, I’m Mickey and this is my blog about Mastering Emacs. I’ve been using Emacs since 2003 and I’d like to share with you all the things I’ve learned over the years.

When I’m not hacking or writing about Emacs, I spend my time architecting, designing and developing bespoke software for businesses — usually using Python. If that’s something you need, you should send me an email. I might be able to help you, or your business. You can read more about me on LinkedIn.

If you want to contact me you can email me on (rot13 ""). (Put your point after the closing parenthesis then type C-x C-e in emacs to reveal the email.)

Oh, and if you use Twitter, why not follow me?
