Accessing Recent Files in Emacs

Some of you may be used to having recently used files available in the Windows file menu. When you look at the Emacs file menu, you may be wondering why that menu is there. In fact, you may be dismissing Emacs as incapable. WRONG! In fact, it's even now part of the GNU Emacs distribution as opposed to being a separate download. Joe Grossberg has a nice, concise write-up of how to enable it.

In Joe's example, he remaps C-x C-r to show the recent files list instead of opening a file read-only. I don't open files read-only very often at all, so I just followed his example to the letter.
