Here beginneth today's rant

GPS is more trouble than it's worth. Shoot, I rarely even use a compass, and at least those don't need some vershlugginer website that won't load no matter what bricky-bracky browser you're using just in order to update the silly things. For that matter, compasses never need updating. Howzat, huh? Compasses are so simple to use, you can memorize all the procedures beforehand. Get yourself a map, and the world is your oyster. But GPS? They can tell you direction and distance to your objective, but that's about it. And trying to follow one is utterly frustrating, as satellites cavort in space and volley your signal back and forth like a ping pong ball in a washing machine. Phooey.
