Since I upgraded to Emacs 22.1, or thereabouts, there has been an annoying Startup or Splash screen whenever I open a file.

After searching around the ole Intarweb, I found this useful tidbit:

;; Remove splash screen
(setq inhibit-splash-screen t)

Add that to your .emacs file, reload it, and voila!

Perhaps there are still a few people who read this site. Though if you don’t, I wouldn’t blame you. It hasn’t been updated since when? March? Is that when I went down to SXSW? Anyways, I’ve started a site that is a place where I can post random/personal/non-nerdy things or just generally express myself more.

I’d like to transition this into a more technical site, writing more specifically about some of the web development that I do and things of that general nature. I haven’t decided if I am going to archive the older stuff on the site, move it to the new site, or what. I don’t think it’s all that important right now though.

Plus, I’ve always wanted to have a domain with my name it. Preferably, just my name. However, there is some English guy who does world-beat music – or some such thing – and has the name. So, I came up with http://MrAsher.com. Follow that link if you want to hear me rant and rave about stuff.
