This is Debian Linux (Sid) running screen+w3m in a framebuffer console:

When I have more time I'd to take a closer look at the html source
of the pages generated by and figure out how
exactly the thread indentation works. I find threaded indented
commenting to be a very useful thing. I like how Mutt does it, and I
appreciate systems that can present threads in a text-mode browser
sans javascript. I'd love to see an open source alternative to DISQUS
that could do this. Here's something I just came across...a pondering
of why fbi can't display images in a terminal muliplexer:

To date, I've been using openvt & something like this for viewing
images within Screen running inside a Linus fb-console:

  [ -e /tmp/images ] && rm -r /tmp/images
  mkdir /tmp/images
  cp "$*" /tmp/images
  sudo openvt -sw -- /usr/bin/sudo -H -u $USER /bin/zsh -c "fbi -e --autodown 
  sudo deallocvt
