    Re: Headlines - What they don’t tell you about T5

    Don't take this the wrong way, but surely this is more aimed at the main HEXUS site, not .channel? Doesn't strike me as a blog type site?

    The main reason I visit .channel is due to the "straight to the point" news that you write Scott, which is brilliant if you want the info fast.

    Not having a dig at all mate, it just looks a little out of place with the rest of the articles and style that's on there - It just doesn't seem to have a tech angle really.

    Fair point Agent, it was pretty much just a self-indulgent rant and ideally belongs in a 'lifestyle' context.

    I do wonder, however, whether there is a place for some frivolous stuff among the 'straight to the point' stories.

    What do you reckon?

    Maybe, but I appreciated this - thanks. the constant negativism elsewhere was getting depressing.

    Re: Headlines - What they don’t tell you about T5

    The kind of architecture you describe is NOT post-modernism.
    Post_modernism is the kind of twee 1980s brick "Noddy-houses", currently peppering Reading and Milton Keynes (brickwork cornices with sad round holes in them and the like). VERY unpopular with decent architects!
    Stanstead, Lloyds, Pompidou centre, Hong Kong & Shanghai bank etc are sometimes referred to as "Boiler-House" architecture.
    Glad your family arrived safely.

    Of course. Its nice to hear the opposing side of the story about T5 and its certainly well written and an interesting read.
    However, perhaps it would be better to have it separate from the main "News" section. Its not really "News" so to speak, its more of an opinion piece.
    Looking under the Analysis section you have an "opinion" piece there. Probably better suited there?

    Its not really an issue either way, just looks a little out of place thats all

    I think, on reflection, you're right Agent.

    Perhaps I'll create a new "Rant" section.

    Not really a "rant" either, you were complimenting T5 for the most part!

    Obviously there would be good parts to it, thats all the news is, Parts of a full story, and a giant exaggerated whirlwind for part of something new which went wrong.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
