More emacs goodies

I dabbled in Emacs (a bit more than usual) last week: we had to do quite a few things at work that were difficult in a normal editor, but easy in this great one.

First up, I finally caught up with the amazing screencasts at Emacs Rocks. I’ve seen only the one on Multiple Cursors but my jaw dropped, and i’ve queued the rest for later viewing. It’s a pleasure to watch someone displaying such a complete mastery of his environment.

Next up is a nice one liner from the top answer to this StackOverflow question. In brief, running `highlight-lines-matching-regexp` and passing `.{81}` to it highlights all lines over 80 characters.
