I am very glad to heard about this.

the article of Bram was published on my web site, pls pay a visit to
http://www.rons.net.cn/vim.html, frankly speakly, it is a very nice article,
and I hope someone could write a better one than his about GNU Emacs.

this is a right advice, and I will take it.

I could understand all of you are very busy,  from the developer's side, 2
pages article for every six months should be good.

Interesting, could you please send me a copy of your article?

the technical track system could be possible to set on the magazine, if it does
not require to update too frequently (changing daily or weekly).

thanks for your support.
