from "Lambda Expressway" By Erik Ray
I've been working on Subversion since its inception in 2000. The Subversion development community is one of the most amazing groups of people that I've ever been privileged to be a member of.
I am one of the main authors of cvs2svn. Converting CVS repositories into Subversion repositories is by far one of the most difficult (and interesting) projects I've ever worked on. I worked through some of the hairiest problems by pair programming with Karl Fogel.
is an Emacs
hack that will bind itself to a key initially, and
randomly either double insert that key or pause for a wee
bit after the user types it. After
broken-keyboard-repeat times, it will unbind
itself, return the key to self-insert-command,
and choose another key from broken-keys and bind
itself to that key. If you fire this up without the debug
messages on, you're probably best off to just kill emacs
and start over to save yourself. I wrote this a loooong
time ago as a prank on a colleague who had rigged my
desktop to display random, err, "photos."
NOTE: Don't act surprised when the person that you pull this trick on finds out that you did it and rips your lungs out with a spork.
