in the print dialogue (more settings) on eg chrome:

Pages per sheet: 2
That saves paper but the words are 1/2 the size and still leaves two big blank columns. Might be the best/easiest though.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Anyone know how to get google maps directions (text only) to fill the full width of the page instead of just half when printing? It would save so much paper.

Flashback to the days before phones when we were printing mapquest directions!

Pages per sheet 2, and also change Fit to Page to Scale about 130 to increase the font size.

Think of the blank columns as Free! white space for writing notes.

What? Nobody here remembers the Automobile Blue Book?

I recall my parents using AAA triptiks in the 90s.

Garmin GPS units were always hot sellers in the earlier DD days.

Used to love paging through the map books my parents kept in their cars.

I remember getting one of those for a trip from Brooklyn to Key West and back. They were pretty shocked at the car rental counter to see how many miles we put on the car in a week.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Does a Rolls-Royce with a Partition exist? Does anyone know someone who rented one for wedding night in Tri-State? Is there a more applicable thread for this?

Why do frum newspapers and magazines include photos of men?  What does it add to the story?

I read the WSJ and NYT daily, but IIRC Ami edited that (and my elbows) out of my response. :D

So itís totally incidental to the question and youíre just wondering why images add anything to the content of magazines in general?
Is it specifically pictures of men that has you confused? Do you get why pictures of other people/things/places might be beneficial to the reader?
