Ten years ago, I imagined that someday I would be able to jump back & forth between PS & ILL -- and maybe even be indefinitely connected to high-speed Internet at home -- without my computer crashing under the strain of having two or three resource-hogs running at the same time.

Next: Jetpacks, then single-payer healthcare.
