Emacs Tip: ESC ESC ESC is the same as C-g

If you want to abort some action and were used to ESC on Windows, the  only difference in Emacs apparently, is to hammer away at the ESC key to mimic C-g.  It might be a good idea to do a C-h k ESC ESC ESC to check the chords description.

Update your package search url as melpa.milkbox.net is now melpa.org

It's been a couple of days but the url has changed to melpa.org. You may need to change your .emacs file  from ("melpa" . "http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/") to ("melpa" . "http://melpa.org/packages/")

Emacs 24.4 release candidate 1

Looks like Emacs release candidate is out and that the official release will come in a few days.  In related news, Alexander Shukaev has posted on the help-gnu-emacs mailing lists about providing precompiled Emacs versions along with the DLLs for Windows.  It may save time for those of you who need specific features that are not compiled into the official release.  You should direct your queries to Alexander, on the list, I think, if you need any clarifications.
