Two odd links from the Daily Telegraph…..

Shocked commuters gawp as woman brings desktop computer on First Class Virgin train

A shocked commuter took a photograph of a woman who had turned her First Class seat on a train into an office by installing a large iMac.

“I work for a software company, and been traveling on the trains for about 15 years, I have never seen anything like it. The lady had a full wired keyboard and mouse.   I am still puzzled why someone would carry a desktop computer around, when a laptop would give her the same options, with more portability.”

And this is for real??  I believe so.  How can anyone be SO out there?

And more useful, I guess….

New London underground map redesigned for people with anxiety

A London Underground map has been published to help passengers with claustrophobia or anxiety conditions.  The new design highlights routes they can take to avoid long stretches of tunnels.  More than half of the Tube’s 270 stations are above ground, with only the Victoria and Waterloo & City lines wholly underground.

Nicky Lidbetter, chief executive of charity Anxiety UK, said: “For those with anxiety conditions such as panic attacks and claustrophobia, we know that travel by the Underground can be problematic and challenging.

I suppose it could be helpful.  But what next?  Sections of the Underground that is always overcrowded?  Sections of the Underground occupied by people with large suitcases?  Where does one stop?
