Legends of the Stallman

For personal reasons, I do not browse the web from my computer. (I
also have not net connection much of the time.) To look at page I
send mail to a demon which runs wget and mails the page back to me.
It is very efficient use of my time, but it is slow in real time.

pointless linky to the source

I usually just tell the demons to get off my back.....I've never tried getting them to do anything useful.

I love the sense that something that is "slot in real time" is an "efficient use of my time," as in I request this web page and it shows up in my inbox just like anything else. Web browsing in that sense isn't a distinct information consumptive activity, but just another thing that he requests and then processes when he gets time.
