I have a 5 or 6 machine home network, most of which are running

So why do you run a *web browser* on this machine?  Put it in the work
shed or wherever, and control it like a server or an appliance.

Chuckle.  2 of them are in fact in a 12x16 shed in the back yard, and 
occasionally I might need to step over to the other idle machine and 
look something up, so both have FF installed, but with the dram shortage 
FF causes, I don't run LCNC and FF at the same time on either atom 
powered machine.  Ditto the garage and its currently 2 machines.

Put your web browser on your desktop computer, and upgrade it to
something that is supported.
That I have in the planning stage, starting with a fresh HD. But

    wheezy is an old friend and I have excised the majority of its warts over the years.

First off, I have some scripts that greatly simplify things for me, and 
which depends on dbus, which I read is deprecated, so what replaces it?

It still works, doesn't it?
As Anne Landers used to say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Sounds like
good advice to me.
