However, many people do have to find space for online docs on their (all to
cluttered) hard drives. Until just a week or so ago, I was in this spot,
having a grand total of 170MB (one 50MB holding Warp, and a 120MB with
everything else, both brutally slow) drive space on my system and having to be
very selective of what components of any program were installed. In many
cases (shareware especially, which hardly ever comes with printed docs), I'd
install the help, print it out, then delete it.

Then I got myself a nice, brand-spankin'-new, super-fast 540MB drive... :-)
