I have to say...

... that's the biggest damn Playstation 2 I've *ever* seen.

Under the tunnels

Having driven through the road tunnels hundreds of times, I walked through for the first time ever a week or two ago. I can confirm that the pedestrian tunnels are *under* the road tunnels - on the westerly tunnel roof about the middle there is a metal manhole cover that gives access to the road tun...

Dresden's lovely.

I'd love to go back there. I was there about 10 years ago, when they were just debating whether or not to rebuild the Leibfrauenkirche (spelling?), or preserve it as a ruin.

Canniesburn(?) Hospital.

Just back from a long walk in Cairnhill woods, taking my girlfriend's dogs for a walk and "looking for my mate's dog" - he must have run off home without us...<p> There seems to be a certain amount of tree-clearing and demolition going on up there just now. There is a security guard in a wee portaka...

Do the films still exist?

I'm sure there's a load of people out there who'd love to see them again...

Underground Stables

People did used to have subterranean stables. Even stables above ground were often kept very dark. I'm not sure why, apparently it was to stop horses from being spooked by things and charging about (so presumably they got spooked by things and stood still in the dark?). The only real effect was that...

Last two photos

What was the building in front of the modern structure just right of centre in the old picture? There is another modern flat-roofed building in the new picture there now (you can see where the same tower is on the new picture, just right of centre).

Another opening

There is another opening when you follow the curved road (which name escapes me for the moment) from Argyle Street where the road up from FInnieston joins on (PC World, kind of area). Go along this road until you get to the hydro board yard, and look over the wall.

Was just driving past that earlier...

It's incredible to think that there was so much there not long ago. I expect the same will happen to the disused Kvaerner buildings, they'll just be left until they are vandalised, unrepairable shells, then demolished and turned into &pound;250,000 flats.

Don't forget...

There is a Linux version of Acrobat Reader as well. Bet you didn't think to include that, for those of us who object to paying a fortune every 9 months for semiworking software... ;-)

Was there yesterday.

I was up there with my girlfriend yesterday. There were some people just leaving as we went past. By the time I'd found somewhere to turn they'd gone - was it someone on here? White car, possibly a Renault? Did you see an old blue Citroen go past? Well that was us. Didn't stay long, SWMBO was a litt...

The Big Blue?

Is that the ones near Otago Street? My Glasgow geography is hopeless (I've only lived here for five years...) When we went down (ages ago admittedly) they were very much welded shut - big steel plates arcwelded onto the backs of the doors along the facing edges.
