Journey without roadmaps
Let's hear it for plucky little CompuServe and its attempts to offer compelling services to its users. Want to plan your travel? Then try Michelin's route planner service. We at The Register tried this repeatedly, puzzling over the way this spanking new service seems to be perpetually down. But maybe it's not - check the url CompuServe points you at, and it's http://www.michelin-travel.com/vide.htm. And the French for empty is of course 'vide'. Back to the drawing board, CIS.
