    Aaah the joys of the roadworks between 28 and 24. Seriously though that looked like one hell of a good time. I take it the Erskine table proceeded to buy all the paracetamol in London the next morning..?

    Thanks for listing them, but I found it very annoying that there were no links to the actual sites. Like a gallery with only the thumbnails and no large pictures.

    How can you not like Stephen Fry, he’s both everywhere and hilarious. The list is great, and like that the Whitehouse.gov was on there and that IE 6 won infamy.
