How To Strip Away Web Page Bloat

Hi Fred! Great to have you back in the
chair. I look forward to the LangaList every week and having been having

grow. And that’s where you come in: Each issue, I try to offer you useful,
interesting and amusing factoids to help you with your hardware software, and
time online. Can you take just a minute to help me out in return?
