    “Automated installation of the Microsoft IE App Compat virtual machines.” So you can test web stuff in IE on your Mac. (via Tom Taylor)

  2. How can safety at advanced stop zones be improved for cyclists? | Jorren Knibbe | Environment |

    Interesting if you’re a little too obsessed with cars and cyclists who break the law at junctions. I hadn’t realised cars are allowed to stop in ASZs if they’re already there when the light turns red.

    @revdancatt *quick calculation* 20% of all web development ever... I reckon that’s at least fifteen quid. My maths might be off though.

    @revdancatt If I knew enough, I’d love to do a rough calculation for how much IE’s rubbishness has cost global industry over the years.
