Until recently i was on dail-up, much of Australia still is.

I have another issue with being forced to do all editing via a
web interface. With the current method of editing the source using
whatever text-editor/xml-editor, i can be much more productive.
I use UNIX tools like find and grep to search for certain occurences
of strings (like when we had to replace all mentions of src/core/context).
I can also edit a number of documents simultaneously.

However i know that most new people don't work that way, so i suppose
that i will need to suffer the loss of such tools.
