All about this site
Apologies to Transport for London.
In London the Oyster smartcard ticket must be "touched" on a reader to open Underground station ticket barriers. For pre-pay Oyster cards, this is particularly important for calculation of the appropriate fare, so even if gates are open or non-existent (with there only being a small validator), then you must remember to "always touch out".
What on earth does mean?
If you use a browser that complies with modern standards (basically Mozilla, Firefox, Opera etc. - sorry, not Internet Explorer) then this symbol shows up next to any offsite links just to let you know that clicking on it will take you away from alwaystouchout, so you might like to open it in a new tab or window (because obviously I don't want you to leave this site!).
We have two RSS feeds which you can use to keep track of news and site updates yourself, or syndicate on your own site (tell me if you do, using the contact form below). They are:
How do I use them?
If you use Firefox, you can add a feed as a Live Bookmark - it'll show up in your bookmarks as a folder which is updated with links to the items in the feed. To do that, click the orange icon in the bottom right of the window.
If you use Yahoo then you can also set up My Yahoo to retrieve new items from RSS feeds so you have everything in one place.
There are also a number of independent programs that read these feeds. Fagan Finder explains what RSS is and suggests some programs for taking advantage of it.
These are areas affected by a particular project. "London" refers to Greater London.
