There are a few useful web sites I use when travelling around the UK like the accessible train timetable
or the route planning facility at multimap
, but Transport Direct
was a new one on me and a real eye opener.
It brings together information from both public and private travel operators and local/national government. Pump in a start point and a destination and it'll give you a comparison of all the different methods of travel between the two car/train/bus/whatever, giving times, and in the case of public transport options, how you'll need to combine walking, buses and trains to get from door to door.
I tried it out with my route from home to work and found that taking the car would be marginally faster than public transport (although parking fees and the congestion charge make it much more expensive) and that there's a regular bus that could talke me to the station every day. Superb. Next time you need to plan your journey in the UK give Transport Direct a try.

Do you remember the inflatable church
? Well the inflatable pub
is definately more useful as long as it doesn't serve inflatable beer.
Some top tips
to make your FireFox
install even faster by tweaking the config file. Also check these optimization suggestions
from last February, back when Firefox was still Firebird, but they're still applicable today. I'm an Opera
user most of the time myself, but I do like to use FF occasionally and anything that improves it even more over MSIE is a good thing in my book.
Weird - Paper Islands
is a web site made entirely out of paper. Well maybe there's a little bit of flash animation as well...
Help build a retirement home for the 8-bit sprites who are now getting a bit passed it, in Pixelville Pensioners
