@agile_geek: What time is your train in the morning? I have to catch mine at 07:22 and I'm south of you!
I commute down on Monday morning and back on Friday. It's over 3.5 hours door to door so can't do it every day.
I normally catch 7:04am Flying Scotsman train on Mon morning. Get's me to office by about 10am
@agile_geek: ah, for some reason I thought you did it daily and you were able to jump on a fast line. My Dad does something similar, but he drives. Wales -> London. He stays in Reading most of the week, so still has a commute in the morning.
@dominicm: Flying Scotsman is fastest train. Non stop from Newcastle. Takes 2hours 40 mins with a fair wind.
@agile_geek: *super duper fast line I mean that got you there in 1h30/2h or so. Will the new line going in help your life at all?
@agile_geek: why doesn’t it surprise me that the wind has influence on the train times 😉
My wife is working in Stockport (near Newcastle) 2-3 days a week - she alternates between staying over and coming home, it’s about 90 minutes so borderline...
Just a reminder that we have a call for papers currently open for the 6th London Clojure conference in December. Please consider submitting a talk so that @agile_geek doesnt have to do a talk on Clojure punch-cards http://jr0cket.co.uk/2016/07/Call-for-Speakers-London-Clojurian-conference-2016.html Thank you.
@glenjamin: Milton Keynes. Actually Wolverton, which is one stop north, but MK is 5 minutes away
Hey, as far as I'm concerned the North starts at York! That means even @glenjamin isn't a Northerner!
I lived in Exeter for a while, when I told the Clojure group I was moving. They asked where Leicester was, I said "North" as I was somewhat ambiguous myself. The Scotsman proclaimed "North of what!"
Yeah most Americans think London and England are synonymous. I'll not count @otfrom in that statement as he's a real Northerner (Yorkshireman)
Oh yeah. My girlfriend's American shows had someone go to England for a university interview at Oxford. The overshot of her being in Oxford was parliament.
Hmm, failed History and Geography then. I seem to remember a few nasty battles fought over that one
My favourite Foreign Secretary gaff was Robin Cook. He invited Irish PM to Foreign Office and left portrait of Cromwell on his office wall!
If you know your Anglo-Irish history, think of the German Foreign Sec. inviting the PM of Israel to his office with a portrait of Hitler on wall!
Typical my carriage on train has broke. A/C! I'm going to smell when I get there so apologise!
Moved carriage before I melted. I'm not built for heat. Now negative temps I can do!
Have you got a lift from the station? No where you're going? If not, I can pick u up from New St?
@paulspencerwilliams Oh fun. Train is terminating in Coventry as it's too hot to safely carry on. I've still got a bit of time but may be a bit late
