I am Stephen O’Donnell and I have been working in software since about 2002 in the UK.  Most of my experience has been gained on enterprise systems for a large corporation, although I have a keen interest in Ruby, Rails, Emacs, OS X and what ever the open source flavour of the month is!

    Have you had trouble with the capital ‘C’ key in emacs after applying your ruby – rails changes to emacs? I don’t know if I’m in a phantom emacs mode but I’m not able to enter a capital ‘C’ – very strange. I’m using Ubuntu if that makes a difference.

    I’m not sure if you get my email address when I leave this comment. It is j$e$i$c$h$a$s at gmail dot com (remove the dollar signs of course).

    Patrick comments on the article in question, saying that if you add a backslash before the C in the line you changed, the “trigger” for the line will become Control+m (C-m in emacs parlance), rather than “Capital C”-m. This means that emacs no longer tries to do anything special with your capital C, it just adds it to the buffer like everything else you type.

    Hope this helps,
