My network connection from home is behaving again. Yay!

Went to a party last night. Is good that I'd been so very anti-social this week, or I'd not have had the energy to attend. Was good, although _much_ too crowded for me. I am definitely periodically annoyed by my difficulties with being able to interact in large groups, especially in the winter. Damn screwy spoken-word pocessor...

I really, really want a map like http://maps.google.com, but which shows the locations of all rail in use - whether it be ground-based or things like monorail. What would be even more sexy would be if, when one clicked on a specific piece of rail, it brought you to the website for whomever runs that particular line (main website would be good, but something specific to what you clicked on would be _amazing_). Better still would be if different types of rail - like, say, short hops things like the MBTA or BART, vs longer trips like Amtrak - were colored differently, so one could tell where the perminant bits of city-based public transit was in unfamiliar cities, as well as how to get between distant locations. (I don't tend to care as much about the busses, as I tend to use them less often. It would, however, be nice to have a similar thing for buses).

My god, I really want that. The main problem I tend to have with most maps for public transit that I've seen is that they are rarely superimposed over an actual map, so I have to do a lot of cross-checking to figure out where I'll end up. I also dislike having to have multiple different maps of the same area, just because of public transit.

*map lust*

This is pretty neat, although those of us with pics, but no default, don't show up. Saw it lots of places. :)
