So, asking heretically: how do I quit Emacs?

@wrench ctrl-alt-del? I have no idea, have never used Emacs. It kind of scares me. :D

@joacim For a second, I thought the "q" was a nine, as in `kill -9 <pid>` which, if you think about it, is largely analogous to the Vim command.

Why is it 9? Because you press 9 before hanging up the phone? That's my guess.

Let's hope the poor sap doesn't realise they just spent hours making edits that are now lost.

@joacim but the visitors only knew ZZ, so they destroyed the planet and everyone on it
