i signed up for an internet dvd rental service at the weekend. the way it works is that i go to their website and select the dvds i want to watch, they post them out to me three at a time along with a return envelope. after watching each movie i put it in the post and they send the next of my choices out to me. it is an unlimited service for a monthly fee and should help to pass some time on the train when there are delays.

this has led me on to an idea for a new website on which there will be more to come over the next few weeks.
