Faster tetris start method
Authored by: jeramey on Jan 05, '05 03:11:13PM
Another way to jump straight into emacs' tetris mode is by starting up emacs the following way:
$ emacs -q --no-splash -f tetris
You could, if you wanted, create a shell alias like this in your .bash_profile file which would allow you to start it up very quickly by simply typing 'tetris':
alias tetris='emacs -q --no-splash -f tetris'
Oh, and selecting xterm-color instead of ansi for your terminal type in's preferences is more compatible. You'll experience fewer weird display problems that way, especially if you ever ssh or telnet to other systems.
