Well, I'd like to see how someone cleverly and quickly gets ZoneMinder
running under Slack 10.1.  I keep bumbling along.......

For my part, since I'm a regular Emacs user, I can demo a number of
features that I know seemed wizardly and beyond my grasp when I was first
tossed, sink or swim, into the deep end of the Emacs pool.

I kind doubt that I can make it in to the installfest but... When is
it again?
