Thanks. I guess I used to care about it back when it was a physical paper directory. I don't think I've used it since.

I thought that directory used to be owned by the AAA, and just managed by the SoA. Do they own it, now?

Back when you had to have an ID with the CAS to get access to the CAS directory, I used to...

I like the little version of Maps that sits on top of another screen. (I'm often the passenger and navigator on long drives.) But that's a different feature from the split screen.

Yeah, I have entered the split screen many more times than I'd like by accident. I haven't done it on purpose since I first got the phone and was playing around. It's not super useful on a tiny...

My kids were generally happier and easier to handle when they'd recently eaten. I get cranky when I'm hungry, too.

Anyway, there's no reason you want to avoid the kid having a positive association...

Good luck with your phone.

I love my noise cancelling headphones, which I pretty much only use on airplanes. They are great for actually hearing the dialog of movies.

I am astonished at how...

If the question of race comes up, sure, you can refer to an interracial marriage. I don't think the term is offensive. It would be normal to use that word if, for instance, you were talking about the...

I loved that book, and went on a Conrad kick after reading it. I bet it would be worth reading again now. Or maybe it would be too depressing.

Thanks, dikta.

For the record, I'm one of the mods who was off line when the decision was made, and said, "good job". If we polled the mods now, I don't think we'd come to a different decision.

I think it's actually about weight. They have weight limits for the checked bags, too.
