Even in multiple hurricanes now, T-Mobile's been up when Verizon's been down. T-Mobile's coverage has been good, international works great. My office's systems were designed with 56k modems in mind, so 256kbps unlimited international's fine for me. Free GoGo Wifi on the plane is a nice bonus. I could pay less, but doubt I could get more for the money.

Brewer's view is that playing cards were developed from an Indian game called 'The Four Rajahs', which is consistent with the belief that the roots of playing cards were Asian. In The Four Rajahs game the playing pieces were the King; the General (referred to as 'fierche'); the Elephant ('phil'); the Horsemen; the Camel ('ruch'); and the Infantry (all of which has clear parallels with modern chess). Brewer asserts that the French corrupted, (or more likely misinterpreted) the word 'fierche' (for general, ie., second in command to the King) to mean 'vierge', and then converted 'virgin' into 'dame', which was the equivalent to Queen in Brewer's time. Similarly Brewer says that the Elephant, 'phil' (presumably the third most powerful piece), was converted into 'fol' or 'fou', meaning Knave, equivalent to the 'Jack'. Incidentally Brewer also suggests that the Camel, 'ruch', became what is now the Rook in chess. It seems (according to Brewer) that playing cards were originally called 'the Books of the Four Kings', while chess was known as 'the Game of the Four Kings'. Brewer also cites a reference to a certain Jacquemin Gringonneur having "painted and guilded three packs (of cards) for the King (Charles VI, father of Charles VII mentioned above) in 1392."
