Fitzrovian Tuesdays Flickr group

I've set up an invite only Flickr group for Fitzrovian Tuesdays - Colin, Tom and Seumas can I get a note of your current email address and/or Flickr usernames so I can invite you to this?

Should hopefully be able to set it up so the most recent photos go on the RHS sidebar, just underneath the "Contributors" bit...

The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar

I've never been a great fan of the Lord of the Rings, always found the books a bit humourless. Did quite enjoy the films however and the MMOG looks amazing.

Britain's climate change cover-up

"Britain creates 200million extra tonnes of greenhouse gases which it is not declaring, campaigners claim.

It actually produces up to 15 per cent of the world's carbon dioxide rather than just the two per cent which the Government admits to.

The gap is mainly down to companies failing to declare the emissions of their factories abroad, says a report from Christian Aid.

Andrew Pendleton, the charity's senior climate analyst, said: 'Our research reveals a truly staggering quantity of unreported carbon dioxide is emitted around the world by the top 100 companies."

This is a good point, I think, and I'm quite impressed that they ran it as a huge splash on the front of Metro today, of all things, instead of Britney Spears's haircut or Jade's rehab or some other rubbish.
