Funny Joe mentioned the Global Positioning Systems (it is definitely
somewhere that you would want to have one if possible), because I skimmed an
interesting story on them in this morning's Baltimore Sun - hint on where I'm
coming from :-) They are supposed to be having a Y2K-like 20-year-or-so
crisis this weekend (I am heading out tomorrow and returning in one week)
where they will reset to zero or something because 1024 weeks or so have gone
by since they went online in 1980! Approximately 10% of the units in use are
expected to be adversely affected. So much for the nuances and infallibility
of modern technology - Luddites Unite! Isn't it ironic how we use our
computers to enhance our enjoyment of these primitive plants? Thanks for the
leads - my time is limited, but I will try to make the most of it!
