I get this (since I happen to be connected ;-)


   Lynx is a text browser for the World Wide Web.    [1] Lynx 2.8.3 runs
   on Un*x, VMS, Windows 95/98/NT but not 3.1 or 3.11, on DOS (386 or
   higher) and OS/2 EMX.  The [2] current developmental version is also
   available for testing.  Ports to Mac are in beta test.

     * How to get Lynx, and much more information, is available at
       [3] Lynx links.
     * Many user questions are answered in the [4] online help provided
       with Lynx. Press the '?' key to find this help.
     * If you are encountering difficulty with Lynx you may write to
       address@hidden  Be as detailed as you can about the URL where
       you were on the Web when you had trouble, what you did, what Lynx
       version you have (try '=' key), and what OS you have.  If you are
       using an older version, you may well need to upgrade.
