First, my thanks to Danny Yee for this very non-trivial effort!

Second, yes, you should hassle your network folks about www, but if they
are reticent, you might ask them about something called Lynx. It is, in
essence, a text-only www browser. It is pretty darned effective (I just
this second tried the anthro-l archives). It is the only alternative to
www over a modem if you don't have SLIP or if you can't wade through TIA
installations. I find it robust, *very* simple (and part of my job is
user support - I would not have said "simple" if I didn't mean it!)

Just a small addition to an otherwise HERCULEAN task by the esteemed Mr. Yee.
