poor choices but the only available ones. and they can be improved.

Maybe we should try doing both. Like what i was told in an extreme
programming seminar, go ahead and fail.

i would like to try libwww again. but then the complexity of it all
makes me look for a simpler alternative not just to the browser but
the whole www.

i was wondering too if the web interface and the desktop interface was
merged by design. two birds with one stone.

things i hate about my linux pc:

1. it takes more than a second to boot up
2. keeps asking about filenames and directories
3. does not remember what i was working on yesterday
4. does not remember all the changes i have ever made
5.cannot figure out necessary settings by itself
