Avantgo is fun. (I love downloading maps b-4 I leave for a drive)
Unfortunately, it doesn't work through most corporate firewalls without
firewall modify (albeit an easy modification)

By the way
I've temporarily delayed my internet-content-technology "dot com" play I've
been working on to join the future Worldcom (Sprint actually) as an
eBusiness Specialist. No real stock options but the cash is insane and much
needed since I just moved across the country.

So I'm seeing this merger get geared-up from the inside-out. Scary stuff.
The Sprint culture is Midwest "quality" and Worldcom should chopper-mow that
down pretty well. Not sure which way this position will go, since the Sprint
backbone will probably get sold off....but hopefully I won't be around that
much longer anyway....Let me know if you need a calling card or
