Abraham talked on way too much and saw one too many comedies in his lifetime. Hardly a good analogy.

You mean even I could learn to write -- like that? Wow; I never thought that could ever be within my reach. Where do I sign up?

Re: Satellite broadband internet, now and in the near future...

regarding writing -- this from an academic:
When you begin reading academic prose, it’s like going into the monkey house at the zoo. At first you’re overwhelmed by the noise and stink. Then you get so used to it you no longer notice.

regarding Bismarck - the original is:
Experience is the dearest teacher, for she gives the test before the lecture.

and for our general discussions in CF, this from Thoreau on Walden Pond:
In my experience, travelers generally exaggerate the difficulties of the way.

Anything new here? What is the consensus on the best 250+ kbps services for cruisers in central latitudes? Setup price and monthly? Thanks everyone
