    So I was listening to your podcast on my commute home today and liked the reference to text-based browsers like elinks and w3m. Am currently using elinks to post this, have the mobile facebook site open in another one, and gmail in yet another window. Also discovered Finch, the CLI version of Pidgin while googling around. Cool stuff. Thanks for the links, no pun intended…

    Hi. I enjoyed the org-mode item. I have started using it and I really like the simplicity of it just being text. One thing it might be worth mentioning is that menu options can be used until the keystrokes are familiar.

    Keep up the good work.
