Elinks. Text based browsing. Awesome. Sorry about all that time you spent on your fancy blog theme, I'm sure it's very nice, but I'll just take the stripped down content, thanks. Also, I was gonna comment but that would have meant opening the captcha in another app. It seemed like a lot of work just to post a droll anecdote.

On the bright side, I did discover that Linus Torvalds is blogging now. I enjoyed reading some of his posts, even though tracker wasn't quite what I was looking for. It's a good project, parents really need a solution for controlling the amount of time kids spend online, something with a little more weight behind it than "just talking to them."
