Bob between us and your shell scripts, Kate. There are a couple of
things wrong with the above:
* bizarre and certainly nonportable use of /dev/tcp
* two redirections of standard input to "cat"
* just, like, I mean, like.
Use wget or curl to retrieve http stuff from the CLUI, or if you want
to get down to the tcp level, "netcat" is a great little utility.
