Pay-as-you-drive roads coming to the UK

Adrian Wallis

Move the businesses

Most people moved to the cities for work

Rail transport allowed people to move out of the cities in suburbia and commute to work

Rail transport became unreliable and couldn't cope after a while

Car ownership rose

Mines/Factories based in/around suburbia closed

Car ownership rose

Public transport across most of the UK is an unreliable joke, I don't know of anyone that wants to drive (sit?!) in rush hour traffic, but they have no option as local job opportunities are virtually non-existent.

The government should offer incentives to businesses to relocate out of the cities nearer to their workforce and offer flexible/home working. Instead, they look at taxing people who have no choice but to drive at peak times to overcrowded cities.

Dell offers XP again amidst Vista complaints

Adrian Wallis

DirectX 10

I currently have a machine set up with dual boot Vista and XP. I've only ever booted into Vista twice since I installed it and I don't intend to use it until I'm 'forced' to by Direct X 10 games.

I still recommend XP and Office 2003 at work too - transparent windows (woo), ribbon bar (woo), neither has provided me with performance/productivity benefits during testing them.
