I used ssh to my machine, then lynx (or some other text-based browser) 
to connect to localhost/mythweb one holiday. This was because I went 
away in a hurry and I already knew how to setup a secure ssh connection, 
but didn't know how to setup secure apache open to the world, so this 
was the quickest solution. It was pretty tedious to browse through 
mythweb via a text browser, but it just about worked.
