Subject: Powell's Technical Bookstore goes online

[    Powell's City of Books is an immense (and wonderful) bookstore in
 Portland, Oregon.  It's a browser's delight and our visits to Portland
 often include an extra day or two to allow for a visit to Powell's.
    Recently Powell's started another store called Powell's Technical
 Bookstore (just down the street from the big store).  Now it looks as if
 the Technical Bookstore is coming into its own and has made a connection
 with the net.  I hope the big store follows suit soon.
