Lynx browses the web just fine, and will write files to disk. After
that many systems can view graphic files off-line. If I recall the
specs for Tony's Perq, he can view it quite adequately. (Oh, yeah,
he has to move the graphic file from his text PC to his Perq -- I'll
take it as a given that he can manage that -- I could if I had three
minutes introduction and I have reason to believe Tony is smarter
than I am).
