Cygwin find breaks Emacs find-dired

At least when the file names have spaces in them, it seems.  Going by this Gmane thread, it's best to use a windows compiled version of find which can be got here or here.  I'd suggest you go with Eli's suggested one, based on his experience in using them.

Getting ppt figures into LaTeX

This might be of interest to folks who work with ppts and LaTeX.  There are some interesting methods discussed in this thread, apart from the usual PDF export and cropping edit cycle in comp.text.tex.  Might be worth checking out.

An Emacs conference?

This looks like a fabulous idea, via Hacker News, that an Emacs Conference is being planned, probably in London.  Go ahead, sign up or at least provide your inputs on what you'd like the experts to cover for you in the PROPOSALS section of the link.

This is the best chance to ask for detailed help if you were too embarrassed to ask on the mailing list or Usenet.
