Loving the Internet ...

There are times when I want wet-ware implants.

These usually come from "really awesome" data retrieval attempts from the Web ... last night The Wife was trying to remember the name of a movie, described it enough that I was able to plug a key bit of the title into IMBD and within a minute she had a print-out in her hand with the full cast list. I just was looking to quote part of a song, and really didn't even remember the artist, but I was able to google on a 4-word snippet of the lyrics and had the thing (turned out to be Bauhaus' St. Vitus Dance) up on my screen in seconds!

I'm enough of a geezer that I vividly recall the pre-PC era, when "research" was "RESEARCH" and involved big heavy books and a lot of time and frustration.

I just wish everything on the Web worked this well ... and I could have it grafted onto my BRAIN!

heh ...
