View Article  Strike Bah Humbug and Box junctions
Due to the tube strike yesterday I had to stay at a friends as it wasn't worth getting home and all the hassle that it was bound to be getting back to East London. So I got the No. 8 buses in this morning to work in Soho. Well that was until I got to Holborn and the traffic started to crawl and I mean crawl. I got off the bus and started walking and strolled a lot faster than any bus up to the top of New Oxford Street and this was the view that greeted me, it buses backed up all down the road. 

Buses tailed back in Holborn

It wasn't till I got to the top of the queue of buses there was about another 5 or six all lined up that I could see the cause of the monumental tailback all down New Oxford Street into Holborn which had held traffic up for about twenty minutes and what had made this massive queue of traffic. The picture below is what greeted me. Oh joy a inconsiderate flat bed truck driver from Stanmore Quality Surfacing. The driver had just pulled out over the box juncation and tried to bully his way in, turn on his flashing amber lights to try and get traffic to move, I think they better get their drivers to read up on they Highway Code and not inflict more misery of the general public while the system is already understrain from the tube strike. Thank for making me incredibly late for work I hope you had a great start to the day too.

150: Box junctions. These have criss-cross yellow lines painted on the road (see Other road markings section). You MUST NOT enter the box until your exit road or lane is clear. However, you may enter the box and wait when you want to turn right, and are only stopped from doing so by oncoming traffic, or by other vehicles waiting to turn right. At signalled roundabouts you MUST NOT enter the box unless you can cross over it completely without stopping.
Law TSRGD regs 10(1) & 29(2)

Why they was a tailback!!! On New Oxford Street

View Article  XBOX360 C667000A error when playing a HD DVD
I recently bouught the HD-DVD player for my XBOX360 along with a few HD DVD's Hot Fuzz, Warriors and V for Vendetta.

I hadn't really watched a movie on it just used it to play games through till this evening when I came to watch Hot Fuzz I bought in the US. I finished playing Bioshock and popped the HD-DVD in the drive. it opened up got the lovely universal HD DVD logo and then BANG the dashboard popped up with an error COULD NOT PLAY CONTENT Error C667000A. First I thought it must be the disc or region encoding so I googled the error with not much luck. Then I came across the answer on this page.

Basically there was a dashboard update for the HD DVD player in May 07 and this fixes the problem. The reason I had not recieved the update is that you have to start the HD DVD with no other disks in the XBOX drive so it doesn't switch to a game in my case Bioshock first. Once I removed the game, made sure i was connected to Xbox Live I pressed play on the HD DVD and the dashboard update popped up and downloaded...and Eureka the disk restarts and plays fine.

If you don't connect you XBOX to Live then you can download the update from the page above.
