Font: How do I do this in emacs
edit .emacs and add
(setq default-frame-alist '((font . "-courier-medium-r-normal--12-
*-*-*-c-*-iso8859-1")
(cursor-color . "black")
(user-position . t)
(user-size . t)
(height . 60)
(width . 80)))

Modify to your liking :)

Cheers,
Tink

Not sure whether it works, I didn't try it (I *like*
the backup-files ;})

that is not a wise idea but you can collect them under one folder i collect them under .save this is more secure. some times you just need them.


;;save everything to a folder
(setq
backup-by-copying t ; don't clobber symlinks
backup-directory-alist
'(("." . "~/.saves")) ; don't litter my fs tree
delete-old-versions t
kept-new-versionhs 6
kept-old-versions 2
version-control t) ; use versioned backups

nakkaya, I'll try yours out.
I just have this one-liner (make sure you make the directory ~/.emacs_backups/:
Code:
;; Save all backup file in this directory.
(setq backup-directory-alist (quote ((".*" . "~/.emacs_backups/"))))
