Buffy And Angel Islington

Today's lunchtime time-waste, via Going Underground, is how to rig the Tube's time-of-the-alleged-next-train pages to do this.

Basically, you pick a station, hit the address bar in your browser, and replace the station name with whatever mildly amusing comment on the state of London transport takes your fancy.

None of which answers the question of why anyone would need a webpage replicating the alleged-next-train indicators unless they were actually on a platform waiting for the alleged next train, when they wouldn't be online to look it up in the first place. Doh.

Oh, and: the real Angel Islington.

(Edit: Transport for London have now fixed this. Drat!)
