I know using a screencast to set the PATH variable is over kill. I
only really made it to test making screencasts. I thought I'd do this
because it was the first thing I needed to set when I used emacs....
For some people it may only take a few seconds to download, and some
people may get comfort from watching it being done, if they read some
instructions and it did not work for them....  I was really wondering
where I could host some for free if I made one with more beneficial
content.
