1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    It is wonderful and I cant help thinking what a f**k up Britain is by comparison when it comes to technology and long term investment. Fantastic orchestra too BTW, the Dresden Staatscapelle, one of the finest in the world

    I guess having the city flattened 60 years ago gave a clean slate to re-develop.
    (Plus the allies decided to rebuild rather than subjugate Germany.)

    We've got trams in Notts too, pretty nifty. I reckon over time they should just keep expanding the networks to incorporate the suburbs rather than limiting them to purely city centre routes.

    Pity we're so hung up on pure profit rather than quality of service, we don't seem to be interested if there's not a gazillion pound to be made by cramming half the town into a single carriage and then charging them £300 for a ticket.
