Why is this irrelevant discussion started every time some topic is
being discyssed in this newsgroup?
It does not matter what the initial question is, what problem someone
tries to solve, what requirements he has, what limitations he may have,
what possibilities there are in solving the issue at hand, there is
always someone who brings up the #$%^@$@ GPS receiver and starts boasting
the price it may be acquired for.

Please people, please grow up.
