Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Expedia is like the opposite of Google. That is to say, Google is fast and gives me what I want, and Expedia is slow and acts like it'll give me what I want and then withdraws it at the last moment. I'm Charlie Brown, Expedia is Lucy, and airplane tickets are the football.
