On-street parking

I agree with pretty much all of that.

The downside to scrapping the Tax Disc is that the number of cars parked on the street will increase. Unused cars will not have to be declared SORN and parked on private land to avoid the tax.

Also, it may be more difficult to identify abandoned cars.

I suppose that parking permits could fix that in problem areas.

RE: Airport Extreme Base Station?

The Apple Airport Extreme doesn't support UPnP instead supporting the competing, but seldom used, NAT-PMP standard.

NAT-PMP does a similar job to UPnP, perhaps it is also vulnerable?
