Untrue?

My feeling is that this is untrue.

Bath would be an example of a very small city with an extremely vibrant theatre scene. I would have to concede that this may be a function of the large number of affluent people close-by.

I echo the first comment that arts coverage in the media is hopelessly London-centric which helps to perpetuate London's dominance in the arts. You only have to listen to Front Row to get the feeling that little of cultural import happens outside of the M25.

Re: "based on an interoperable open standard"

You need to visit a third tier city like Bristol. The buses are extraordinarily expensive and unreliable. The urban rail north of the river is a dream but doesn't really go to the right places.

The thought of having a town/city wide smart card for public transport for many of the UK's inhabitants is a wild dream, and the thought of it working interoperably in other cities country wide is some sort of utopian day dream.

End of the first paragraph. Could be a typo, could be my ignorance.

Consolation?

If it's any consolation the BT HomeHub is equally awful. Blocks almost every application using uPNP and opening ports makes no difference.

Quickly plugged in my linksys WRT 54G running dd-wrt and i have has no problems since.

Roland Edirol UA25

Have to say that i have the Roland Edirol UA25 and use it with logic and a macbook pro and i wouldn't rate it. All sorts of problems including output clipping when i have my mac volume at maximum (no matter how much i turn down the device in audio/midi settings). The headphone output doesn't work either.
