You've got your nickers in a twist again.

 

I made it clear in post 44 that I was replying to an earlier post of yours.  2 PMs I have had would indicate other posters understood what was going on.

Re: London is a great such place to live.

no nickers (sic) being worn here!
you could receive 300 PMs, it wouldn't change the fact that you replied to a post of mine that made no reference to london. you've been here long enough to know that if you replying to a previous post then you quote it, if you're replying to the immediate preceding post then you don't quote it.

as they say, it takes a big man to admit they made a mistake.......

However, i do stand by my original statement - London is pretty much a [-Censored-] hole. the public transport network is really the only decent thing about it.

I think there are more occupied cardboard boxes in London than in any other city in the UK.

Re: London is a great such place to live.

Yes this is a problem but one that seems to exist in most capital cities. I noticed the same problem in NY.

Re: London is a great such place to live.

It seems daft to concentrate all those jobs in a relatively small area. Given the current capabilities of the Internet there's no real reason for central offices for service industries. Employees should work out in the countryside where they can get to know their neighbours.  The big firms would save a bundle on office accommodation costs too.

We used to live in one of those, twenty six of us in middle of road!

Big money, economic activity, a central location, major airports and rail links all giving easy access to the rest of the world. Try getting to New York or Tokyo from 5mbps download Carmarthen! Wink

Re: London is a great such place to live.

Well in the past couple of years I've run projects in Zurich and Moscow from sunny Derbyshire using 79/19 mbps broadband for networking and phones. Manchester, Birmingham and London airports are reasonable for access.  Fortunately I don't have to rely on a local Welsh airport and Welsh airlines Wink
