I suggested the command line. He can do his own googling for the right
(very simple) commands required.

If he likes a GUI, or is far too stupid for the command line, he could
hunt down a copy of Sam Spade.

Very wise.

As far as I'm concerned, wget is just another CLI command in Linux. :-)

It's still around, but it's getting more difficult to get, mate. I have a
few discs here somewhere with the MSI package. Haven't used it for a
while as I rarely use Windoze, but I had an old laptop running (chuckle)
WinME which I only used for running Spade from time to time.

It's too dangerous.

Seriously, I was using Midori Browser. When you use "view-source:" you
can click on active links and it gives you source on them too.

I do believe my Safari browser does the very same thing!

Perhaps I'll play some more during the winter.

Thanks!

That doesn't sound like good news, FTR. :-(

Good luck. I hope all is well and that nothing nasty is found.

If there *is* something nasty, I hope that they *do* find it. I know
what you meant though, and thanks.

the worst part is the stuff you have to take to clean yourself out but
even it is getting better. When my wife had her first one done she had
to drink a gallon. The last time it was a little bottle that you mixed
with 7up.
