On a related note, does anyone have a browser for RT-11? I've got Telnet
and FTP running, but would love to add web access :^)

Guess I really need to take a look at the source for lynx.

As for EMACS, you want to run "Eight Megs And Constanstantly Swapping" on a
PDP-11? Even a vi hater like myself would probably stick to vi on 2.11BSD!
