    Ah I never liked libraries anyway. The only time I use to go there is to meet up with some nerdy people who could help me with the course work or getting updates what is happening in class.

    Though I am not sure if the laptops were allowed before, I think it is something new because usually universities get allot of security problems specially people who uses the uni connection to hack into Uni servers. I guess they have tighten up the security now.

    Let's not say "Cramped" can I say a little "tight" haha ....

    Well Cardiff is big city compared to Bath. Secondly have you been to Bristol? The new Cabot Circus is superb. There is Next, House of Fraser and allot more other shopping centers there.

    I like Bristol as it has so many places to go for lunch. From Nandos to Wagamama . As I mentioned before, I love to go to restaurant with my friends. We use to spend almost everyday (every day lunch and dinner to be precise! ) in restaurants. It was like if you were in any resturant you'll def find me there eating and laughing and talking to my friends.

    I have never taken busses, I just think they are way too "tight" and their times are never been fixed. Sometimes they turn up early sometimes late. Car is the best option .

    Regards

    I have not been watching the news so .... why the drop? What changed?
    When the prices hit a record high the US got ticked and stopped driving so much. That drove down demand which drove down prices of the oil per barrel. At least that's their story. And the best part? The oil companies are crying that if the price of a barrel doesn't come up they can't afford to stay in business.

    Um........ wasn't the price of a barrel of oil the same a couple years ago as it is today? So, why do they think they'll go out of business now if their business was doing so **** well a couple years ago at his price? I mean the cost of living hasn't gone up that much. Please!!

    Anyway, I was at $1.72 this morning. I'm loving it!! At 1000 miles a week commuting for work, $1.72 looks way better on a neon sign than $4.09.

    I calculated it at $6.72 per gallon today. But it is going down bit by bit but we are always way more expensive here in Europe.

    I agree and I am not sure why they still crying when they making record profits. Like Shell made $27.6bn earnings from this year.

    Source: Shell's record profits branded 'obscene' | Business | guardian.co.uk

    Shell was today accused of making "obscene" profits at a time when pensioners, motorists and industry are struggling with higher energy prices when it unveiled annual earnings of $27.6bn (13.9bn).

    I'd say It's a jungle out there!...(song from Monk series) Regards
