Dear CLUGers,

RMS visit of our capital has been discussed on this list before, and
I'm sure those of you who want to attent the public lecture next week,
have already registered etc.

The reason for my writing, however, is not to remind people of this,
but to bring to your attention the rather unique opportunity to
participate in a half-day workshop given by the man himself on our
favourite text editor.  :-)

The workshop is hosted and organised by the ANU, originally aimed only
at students, but it now seems that ca. 15 people from outside the ANU
can also participate, free of charge, of course (that is, the ANU pays
for them, so to speak).

For further info and how to register, etc. please see the text below,
but you got to be fast:

Lisp programs. It is an opportunity to learn Lisp through using it, as
well as an opportunity to learn to extend Emacs."
