Study room - the Oxford train

I'm jotting this note offline as I travel up to Oxford - day 2 of a 3 day course covering the deployment of Java in a Tomcat container with an overview of Java itself and a good technology sort-out so that people know their beans from their SDKs, and they recognise a Forrest and Cocoon and Ant ...

I drove yesterday as I had a dozen laptops to take with me, and I'll be driving tomorrow to pick them up after the course - but what a waste of time that is. Today, it's the train and I've got a too-rare opportunity to sit, think, write, read ... perhaps the ulterior motive of Oxford's town planners (where they discourage people driving in) is to further increase the study opportunities people have. Is an Oxford Bus a mobile study room? Ah ... best save this away. Changing trains at Didcot in a minute.

Graham:Footnote. Way home ... first chance to try our one of First Great Western's new "Adelante" trains. OK - I know they've been around for a while but I always seem to select a service with the old "125"s. First impression? OK. Perhaps a little better than OK. But not "Fantasic". A bit plastic ... and no power point for the laptop which Virgin now provides on its "Voyager" fleet.
