Well, for instance, my DSL connection went down for three days (just
this past week). But, I have saved a number of Python tutorial documents
for Tkinter to my local machine (thank goodness!). So I was at least
able to program!

Or, if you teach a programming course for about 20 high school students
in a non-networked lab with 28 standalone machines...maybe it would be
nice to have local documents on the machines???
