Online Tax Disc Renewal

February 15th, 2006 4 comments

DVLAWell I’ve just renewed my tax disc using DVLA’s new online service, and I can honestly say that it could not have been faster if I had been standing at the post office counter. Very impressive. Just waiting to see if the Post Office can screw it up by not delivering it in time.
UPDATE: Tax disc arrived two days later.

Traffic Lights on Roundabouts

February 13th, 2006 No comments

Why is that there are roundabouts screaming out for traffic lights, such as the Kearsley Roundabout in Bolton which clogs up every morning and evening, but others which have already got traffic lights but never have them switched on during peak hours (M61 J6)?

Clip Frame Sizes

February 8th, 2006 No comments

I recently got a 30″x20″ print done at Photobox while they had a special offer, but now that I’ve come to buy a clip frame for it, I can’t seem to find a 30″x20″ frame. All frames seem to be metric. There is one size close (750 x 500mm), but it would mean trimming an unacceptable amount off the photo and losing part of the border on the print. (30″x20″ is 762 x 508mm)
30″x20″ is a standard photo size, so why does no-one make a frame to suit?
