I don't believe the groundstations are obselete - there are a few more due to come online sometime in the next couple of months (northern summer). Our experience with WAAS, we were often getting down to less than 10 feet, or 2-3m. A bit better than the 4m you're now getting, but at that point we're ...

There's something to be said for the smaller remembrance services, too - we were in the UK for Anzac Day in 2000, and participated in a service at a local church cemetery. We had a bugler for the Last Post and Reveille, a British Army piper in dress uniform - and only about 20 people gathered. Toget...

Stable tables (with the bean bag base) also work pretty well for keeping hot laptops off your lap.

My wife refused to shop with our oldest son anymore when he was about 4. He chucked a full on tanty one day in the supermarket because he couldn't get what he wanted, so I chucked a bigger one right next to him mimicking everything he did until he ran out of the shop. <p> And I thought Slider was t...
