Absolutely no. I'm just telling that even if cron depends on a MTA, i
may want to not install cron, so I don't need any MTA. The same for
other cases.

There is a huge confusion. The point I made here has nothing to do with
the proposal of accessing p.d.o every time to find for information. I do
use p.d.o for searching sometimes, and what I was telling is that p.d.o
would not be useless because of my proposal.

BTW, if you like so you can give me a better notebook, I would be really
happy with a new one. A 486 55mhz with 8Mb RAM was all I could afford,
and yes, I do have good internet access at work.

BTW, the biggest problem isn't the download time, but the processing
time, that is really huge.
