More This and That...

My iPad found a new aspect to its usefulness this week. I was trying to write a bibliography for AVGVSTVS to AVRELIAN. It's a job which is usually a pain - find the book, bring it to the Mac, type in the details, take it back, find the next book, etc. But with the iPad I can take the 'puter to the books, so writing the bibliography became a tour of my bookshelves, iPad in hand. …
