Curious searches

Polar Navy blog gets both visitors that are looking for software and, of course, people that look for other, usually navigation-related, items. Wordpress shows search queries that bring users to the site. Some searches are pretty mundane, others are kinda interesting. There is lots of "polarview crack" visitors (isn't that wonderful), people looking for true/relative wind calculation, enc charts, that sort of thing.

Today there was this one, which made my day: "algorithm to find estimated time of arrival using speed and distance"

Re: Curious searches

Another one today: "book of mathematical equations used in marine navigation"
May I suggest basic algebra and trigonometry? Curiously, this one is from Canada. And they say US math education is lacking.
