Things I learned today:
- the AT&T Global Network has the best prices if you’re looking for occasional global dial-up Internet access
- the Japanese FM radio band uses different frequencies than we use in North America,
- rechargeable batteries (AA, AAA, C, D, etc.) are still hard to find, expensive and have chargers that are too big and cumbersome,
- per capita Subaru ownership in Maine far exceeds that of PEI,
- you can now buy bottled unsweetened iced tea in New England,
- if we are to believe the movie Pearl Harbor, WWII-era military Japan had much, much better aesthetics than the US: Armani-designed uniforms, cool battle planning bunkers with reflecting pools, etc.
- Irving Oil dominates the retail gasoline market in northern Maine.
- Xircom modems suck; CardAccess modems rock.
