@kdfrawg I'd volunteer to try it myself, but I'm not exactly the average e-book reader, I think it's fair to say. ?

@kdfrawg Interesting post. I still think you should consider selling e-books, as anyone who is technically inclined enough to think of looking for them anywhere but Amazon/Kobo/Nook is likely technically skilled enough to transfer them from computer to e-reader with a USB cable.

You might say it's an Excel-lent feeling.

@kdfrawg If my two Revolutionary War ancestors could see what's happening today, and compare it to Canada, I believe there would be at least a chance that they would reconsider their opposition to the King.

@kdfrawg I'm still in the bewildered stage. I honestly thought we were better then this.

@kdfrawg That being said, consider the Austrian presidential election. The ghosts of Dollfuss and Schuschnigg are celebrating somewhere right now.

@kdfrawg In retrospect, I wish I'd gone to university over there somewhere, and stayed.

@kdfrawg I think European railways in general put ours to shame, but then it's mostly a socialist hellhole of decent public transportation and health care over there. Ditto for Canada. ?

Amtrak is reasonably roomy, but the schedules are erratic because the tracks are mostly owned by the big freight railways like BNSF, so Amtrak trains don't have priority. I've never been to the UK but have had good experiences on the continent with SNCF and Deutsche Bahn.

I wish train travel was a better experience over here. So much nicer than being crammed into a flying cigar tube.
