And, of course, I get the "done, with errors" thingy in the lower left corner of my screen, little boxes with red X's in them instead of pictures, and can't read beyond page one. $%^&*()(*&^%^&*(&^&*() computers!!!

"done, with errors" is an internet explorer specific error. You shouldn't be using internet explorer anymore, the internet is too dangerous for it.

Or try Opera, which is much much faster than IE and with a good text to speech built in. Clever Norwegians.

"Reflecting the amount of rainfall during the preceding several years, the main pool at the spring varies from a few inches to five feet in diameter and from three to nine inches deep. It is located in the heart of the oasis, at the base of a palm. Except during and a few years after a serious drought, there may be several additional seeps and smaller pools of water in shallow holes dug by wild burros."

A few inches in diameter and a few inches deep. I would not depend on that as my water source.
