ETA Boards Bug

An amusing five minutes

After my little rant in yesterday's comments I'm not apologising for using a dreaded three letter acronym (TLA arrrgggghhh) - but I think everyone knows that ETA is Estimated Time of Arrival and Geoff
blogged about the ETA boards that you can view online which show, from the comfort of your computer, when the next Jubilee or Bakerloo line train will be arriving.

Oops - basically if you put any old name at the end of the long address at the moment it will put that "station name" in the title for the results. Ahh, you can have, well......seconds of fun making screen grabs of these and sending links to your friends. Enjoy, before the bug gets fixed.
