Note that air traffic controllers also use paper flight progress strips to keep track of traffic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flight_progress_strip

Thanks for this. I'm always intrigued by behind-the-scenes peeks at how things work.

People who are eating at Alinea, but have restrictions like "no parm" and "i don't like charred food" ?!? The mind boggles.

Alinea sounds nice until you actually read Grant Achatz write about, well, himself. He comes across as at least a little vain.
