    Re your last observation, "It occurs to me that given a virtual sextant and access to the Net's many calculators, the combination could well give potential cell navigators the instant gratification of knowing they can master that weird gizmo that attracted them in the first place, and give them the confidence to delve further.", seems a perfectly reasonable conclusion to draw.

    As to the "virtual sextant" you mention, I guess that almost anything is possible, though I haven't seen or heard of one. Speaking personally, if there was such a thing as this "virtual sextant", it might be sort of sad, in that I could have spent the money I use to by my Astra on something equally silly, for instance another pistol.

    Also, if such were the case, how could I justify my lurking about the beach, other than by allowing that I was really awaiting the passage of some bikini clad female(s), whom I might gaze upon in an absolutely lewd manner, being the dirty old man, old writ large, that I am.
