Rob pointed to Andrew Morrison's favourite things to eat & drink in Vancouver. After a few hours of programming and manual data manipulation, I was able to provide a Google Map of Andrew Morrison's 50 favourite things to eat in Vancouver that Rob requested.
I found just a bit more satisfaction as a fixer rather than consumer. To apply just a few moments of time in careful observation can save hours of time shopping, hours of time earning money to be wasted, and hours of time being frustrated by buying things you really don't even like in the first place. So before giving up on old stuff, be brave. Try to fix.
