Console Mio!

I figured out my concentration/reading problem -- the solution is to use lynx in the console.

I know, it's very retro, but, ever so easy on the eyes.

To set your Ubuntu console up, do this:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

select: UTF8
next select: Combined - Latin; Slavic Cyrillic; Greek     
then select: VGA
Finally, select: 32x16 

For extra happiness, set your mouse up with gpm:  sudo apt-get install gpm

Now type alt-ctrl F1 [or F2-F6] and browse like it's 1980.

To get back to X, do alt-ctrl F7
