100% correct - a dark room, or even a dark room, *and*
sunglasses... Man, I'm happy you understand me!

The web browser issue - well, you could configure Firefox but
incompletely so. I use Emacs-w3m. That's not optimal, either,
because all the webpages are designed to be used in a GUI setting
(with different font sizes etc. to convey information). It doesn't
matter how "good" Emacs-w3m gets. But it is still much
better. (And the integration and configurability on to of
that. Dropping the mouse and FF/Iceweasel improved my life a lot.)

I *know*, this is what a said - the visual reorient. Why do you
think this is news for me? It is not.

:) I'm 30! And I've had this for ages. But I take it as a
compliment, don't worry.
