Rich text or not rich text, that is the question

So, that is good news. Sending a rich text email from gMail does not
prompt those spurious carriage-returns to be added. So, what about
Apple's Mail program on the Mac? I have just set up my gMail account
on my Mac's Mail program, just so I can test this, and the email I am
writing is rich text, in the sense that if I go to the Format menu at
the top of the screen it gives me the option to "Make Plain Text" --
which implies that it must already be in rich text form. But so far I
have not included any italics or bold or any other formatting, so
maybe it will make an executive decision when I hit 'Send' and will
unilaterally send it in plain text form only...

Selecting Full on this computer may result in degraded video playback

When I attempt to import Full 1920x1080 video into iMovie '08 on my MacBook, it tells me "Selecting Full on this computer may result in degraded video playback".

Do I need to switch to Final Cut? There is a discussion on the Apple Support forums, but no answer yet...

Berkhamsted Multi-storey Car Park

Petition The premise seems to be that Berko needs more parking spaces, and that the traffic infrastructure is able to accommodate extra traffic. However, according to the council's own report , our largest car park only gets 73% full, and the Lower Kings Road already gets 93% congested at the weekday evening peak - so the traffic congestion problem is already worse than the car park utilisation, and they predict the traffic queues on Lower Kings Road will increase by about 30%. If you want to know the detail... Let's start with that first part: that Berko needs more parking spaces. Looking at the council's own Transport Assessment that they have submitted to support this planning application, it says that the railway car park gets only 73% full at its busiest hour in the week. So there are already a significant number of free spaces in Berko just a few minutes walk from the centre. And as for the Lower Kings Road car park, the report tells us this can get up to 97%
