This led me to do a better Google search so now I've reconfigured emacs 
and eww is working. Yay! Now I have math and code-related tools to try 
out. (Anyone use the math navigator?)

I still don't have w3m working and I did not see any useful output in 
the messages buffer.

The emacs manual is generally easy to understand but I'm having the 
opposite experience with gnus. I don't understand much of the 
terminology, I don't yet know elisp and ATM I'm just trying to figure 
out how to set up gmail.
