I was puzzled all day how PHB got afraid of saying no to installation requests of his browser.
Now it dawned on me that the only explanation is that Wally taught him that, knowing that it will unable PHB even further to give him work or to follow up on Wally's to-dos.

Tell PHB to use Safari, then he won't be able to add the toolbars.

Browse the internet for anything "important", then WRITE it down for PHB?

Sounds like a job for Wally! I believe that he could turn something like that into a career.

Dilbert has a golden opportunity here. "Sure, boss, I'll let you know if anything comes along on the Internet. Oh, look, here are some figures showing that engineers are in high demand and require massive pay increases."

It cracks me up to see peple, especially the younger ones with good eyes, working at an xterm window that is 2 by 3 inches in about 6 point font. Talk about unempowered! My beef is when the same mindset becomes a text area on a web page, where I cannot change the font or size! I use xterm -fn 12x24, which is a huge roman font that fills most of the screen at 80x25. Of course, others have really tall windows, so they can see 150 lines at once without scrolling! I justify my big window as, in addition to fading eyesight, I mentor a lot of people, and they can watch looking over my shoulder at such a distance that they are not letting me know what they last ate. For some, this can be really invaluable.
