I've been listening with some amusement to various reports from drivers coming up on R2, moaning
about how dreadful it is. "In this day and age..." etc. whingeth one from his moby on the M11. I
finished that one with "... with people as well connected by telephone and radio reporting of
traffic through RDS, you'd think people would hear warnings not to go out and actually pay some
attention to them!"

Deary me...

I don't watch Breakfast News but let me guess , snow in the home counties so suddenly it's a
"story"? :-(

I could do it quicker with a unicycle, although I'd have to go and buy one, and then walk along
carrying it!

I produce a safety video for my work colleagues every month. This month's was how to prepare for
car journeys in winter. I got stuck in the snow myself filming the clip.

I'm sure it's probably interesting but to me it is just a pile of character. What is an asf file?

Not sure what it is but Winamp 3 opens it, although the picture appears to be upsidedown or
back to front.

Should there be sound too, Simon?

"Advanced steaming format" . You right click on it, select save target as, download it, then play it
in Media Player, Winamp or Real Player One. Simon
