Thanks, guys. Of the two, I really hope the latter link reaches the widest audience so I can get back to dressing like a slob and wandering down alleys.

I know why I take the bus more - because it's easier to take now! Busplus from Schenec to Albany gives me a nice relaxing ride and I can do work or read my book, I basically gain an extra hour of my life. Can't wait for the navigator cards to ramp up. Much better than those ten trips.
