QuickVoy Fetcher

Sometimes you might only want to fetch something without the bother of loading a browser. You could always telnet to the server and type GET /whatever, but that isn't such a good option if you're trying to fetch an image.
QuickVoy, with the help of the fetcher utility, offers you a simple way to fetch anything you choose.

If you find you require the same thing on many occaisions (for example, the current weather satellite image of Europe - that's what I use it for, try fetching "`d2" sometime) then you can use the macro options to replace your long URL with an easier keyword. Simply type the ` character, followed by the keyword.

In case that wasn't clear on your browser, the character is ASCII 96. That's the backwards apostrophe above the Tab key on most keyboards.
