Mapblast from the Past

Was reminiscing about my fondness for MapBlast and the old school LineDrive directions when I discovered my coworkers hadn't heard of it.  A quick Google brought up this excellent article:

"It was brilliant. Clean, simple, effective. It tells you everything you need to know about how to get from A to B, and it tells you nothing else. There is no clutter. It does not take up my time or printer ink with roads I won’t be using, or cities hundreds of miles from those I’ll be passing through. I can look at this map quickly while driving. I don’t have to hunt around the page to find the little blue line that contains the path information I need — everything on this page is there because it’s essential."
Couldn't have said it better myself.
