Huh?  I use email to do everything except the 'closing' part, and for that
I use a customized version of Lynx (you know, the text-only terminal-based
browser).  It's extremely fast, mainly because whenever it sees image tags
or javascript tags, it says, "yah, right, whatever, moving right along..."

The "customized" part comes from turning off all the deliberate delays
Lynx adds when printing status messages at the bottom, e.g., "connecting
to," sleep 3 seconds, display page.  Since the messages
are always the same when working with GNATS, I killed them.

Are you using the same GNATS system the rest of are using?


If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace.  We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.            - Samuel Adams
