BrowseKillRing - A really sweet mode to let you browse the kill ring for things you have killed before and want to yank. Amazing little mode, I love it.

Now I need something like this for query-replace, so that I can search through my previous query-replaces.

Instead of using C-u 9999 C-x e, try C-u 0 C-x e. From the docs: "With numeric prefix arg, repeat macro that many times. Zero argument means repeat until there is an error."

M-x comment-or-uncomment-region . I have key binding for this (define-key global-map "\C-z\C-c" 'comment-or-uncomment-region)

mark-whole-buffer is useful. It's on C-x h.
