    Well, it looks like from the response about splitting Bowditch that
    Celestial Navigation is a thing of the past. Maybe it might be
    worthy of an appendix as a "backup" method.
    Wonder what's going to happen when at a very inconvenient time
    someone decides to turn off ( and they will ) the GPS.
    Second thought. I would urge people not to buy "e-books" with
    all kinds of restrictions placed on them. E-books are a menace
    to freedom. Checkout the philosophy section at http://www.gnu.org
    and the writings  Lawrence Lessig  and Richard Stallman.
    Instead of "Pay per view" if we are not careful, we are going
    to end up with "Pay per read".
