Entry #200

I discovered this evening that NoMonthlyFees has ELinks installed. (Quite by accident, really. I'd installed Charm, a Python LJ client. I was playing around with it and it launched ELinks to view my recent entries page.) Like the older lynx, ELinks is a text-mode web browser but in addition, it supports frames and tables so that makes a lot of websites, such as Where's George, easier to handle.

Okay, so why is this important? Well, there are times when you only have text terminals. For instance, the Internet Room at Anthrocon. This year, I will be able to ssh to my account at NoMonthlyFees and use ELinks.

Didn't do much this evening. It's still a cold hell. Are there any lakes I can walk across?

Microwave mini tacos are good!
