Uh, I telnet to Shellworld all of the time. Pine is definitely on the 
shell. I've been playing with Unix shells since 1994, so I do understand 
the core basics. My question was if there was any notetaker or software 
that would allow me to either telnet/ssh to my shell account. The Pac Mate 
runs Windows Mobile, which does not have either client installed. It 
sounds like I may have a couple of options. I can either use a telnet/ssh 
client for Windows Mobile such as VXHPC or Pocket Putty. There might also 
be a way for me to set up Outlook to access my mail on Shellworld since I 
believe it uses pop3. I'd rather access my mail on the command line, but I 
might ultimately have to go that route. I've also considered purchasing a 
netbook which would allow me to install a terminal program like Tera Term 
Pro since I'd be using a real PC. I may be getting to the point where 
using a notetaker may be more limiting than I would like. I really 
appreciate those of you who have taken the time to answer my questions and 
given me some food for thought. I ultimately asked the question on the 
Linux list since most people on other blindness-related lists I'm 
subscribed to had no answer. Since I want to access my UNIX shell and 
ultimately build my own Linux box, I thought there would be knowledgeable 
people on this list who might be able to give me some direction. Ok, so 
that's my long explanation for my question. Thanks to everyone again for 
being willing to help.
