The wheels on the bus go round and round

February 12th, 2007 (09:42 am)

This is the first time that I've posted from anywhere that's moving, in this case, the Oxford Tube , somewhere near High Wycombe. Connectivity isn't good around Lewknor, and from recent news of cutbacks in the taxibus service that's as much a public transport comment as an internet one.

As for me, I'm still sleepy and still recovering from the banquet; the two are not unrelated. It's taking a bit longer to get into London than I thought it would though the traffic is fairly light. Still hoping to get to my first appointment by 11am, though, but won't fit anything in before it.

We should arrange a date this week for Citizens and Kings (and maybe Hogarth as well?).

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving,
and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour...

But that depends on how far from the equator you are ...

Ah yes, the Tube. Rather comfier than a "megabus" (avoid if you possibly can), but it takes A-GES.

Sounds like fun was had by all at the banquet.

The Oxford Tube's speed varies according to traffic density; I was only fifteen minutes late for my appointment so I wasn't that far out. There are times of day, and times of week, when the coach only takes an hour from Thornhill Park and Ride (where I normally meet it) to Notting Hill Gate (where I often disembark).

This strikes me as a high-flying and glamorous thing to do.

I thought so too... but WiFi is everywhere now, and soon it's going to be more unusual to find somewhere that doesn't provide it than somewhere that doesn't.
