Re: Sydenham Info goes IPv6

The way you present the news link summary on https://sydenham.info is very attractive.

Good work.

Re: Sydenham Info goes IPv6

Can't be sure precisely when it happened. I have had FTTP for a couple of years now and took delivery of their SmartHub 2 in recent months. Sometime shortly thereafter I noticed the IPv6 option had been activated.

Not sure if activation is Hub-type dependent.

Re: Theft in broad daylight

Horror story - your friend's case to be argued with the supplier, deliverer and respective insurance companies will be a tale to be told too. On Perry Hill the fastest drive-by pick-up in daylight is around six minutes. Average 12-25 minutes for white goods. Once watched an eastern European lady lif...

Re: Guess who's no 1 in the EE 5G roll-out

As we transitioned from 3G to 4G our local networks were diluted by the early conversion of existing antennae to 4G. Performance on 3G plummeted as a result. If lessons are truly learned , there will be no repeat of this reduction of transmission strength and distribution during this upgrade - perha...

Re: Coop Forest Hill

Despite rumours to the contrary, the exit of the co-op from the corner site may presage the start of the construction of the 85 bed hotel. Not sure the relocation site is the best choice - the existing corner site was convenient for many nearer to Forest Hill town centre and not least the home-comin...

Re: Fatal Accident Outside Catford Station

Well argued Stuart. I do hope you are right. Observationaly however I still feel the frequency of occasions where we see that category of behaviour that you describe as stupid is too great. Are those instances a result of people being blinded by the need to make constant progress and therefore disre...

Re: Fatal Accident Outside Catford Station

I note the linked article says, or at least implies, that the lorry driver didn't stop immediately. It makes me wonder if he even knew, if it happened in his blind spot (or one of them). I have seen cycles mount the pavement specifically to give lorries a wide berth which is not good if pedestrians...

Re: What’s going on at x?

... That would, in the past, been the natural domain of the Sydenham Society. The problem is, of recent years, SydSoc has been evolving into a more partisan organisation - hence less able to reflect the views of the broader community. We are a bit stuck there. [BTW that is an explanation and not an...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

I will always be proud of the work I did as a moderator on the SE23Life forum. I still believe the model the early mod team developed is one of the best out there for a friendly and inclusive forum. My association with CB is in that context and I will never be ashamed of that. Absolutely and your p...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

The mod team deserve a lot of praise, because modding comes at a personal cost. Every mod intervention potentially sours a moderator’s relationship with a community member. But it’s absolutely vital to moderate a community in order to keep it positive and constructive. Some ad-hominem threads of ot...

Success should have been complete with all that support and goodwill. Where did it all go wrong? How come this thread has now eclipsed the old "Exile from the North" critique of SE23.COM in both length and veracity? Is the cause all the people here or the one person there?

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Thank you. In the current mood of unblocking, my thousand year ban on SE23 and SE26 was set to zero a few months ago and then some individual promptly re-imposed a ten year ban. Interestingly I still have a thousand year ban on SE6. Show some benevolence - unblock members of our communities on all ...
