Hello Emacs Calc fans!  I have made a quick reference guide to this fine tool. It's no simple card, but a little booklet to keep near your computer. I've been adding to it for years, but finally made it public (with the encouragement of jcs at Irreal).

It's now available on GitHub at https://github.com/SueDNymme/emacs-calc-qref  — and with pre-made PDF versions at https://github.com/SueDNymme/emacs-calc-qref/releases

Youtube makes it pretty simple to embed videos, they give you the entire iframe HTML code to use, but this wouldn’t really be Emacs if we couldn’t make things just a little bit better.

Emacs is My New Window Manager. Most companies that employ me, hand me a “work laptop” as I enter the building. Of course, I do not install personal software and keep a clear division between my “work like” and my “real life.” However, I also don't like to carry two computers just to jot down ...
