Re: Concerning Chris Beach

Nic,

To be fair SE23_Chris has just removed all his Twitter accusations against you (and me) from the public domain. A good and sensible move.

Re: 1.15 AM: tree felling or "boy" racers?

I was mystified to get one about treefelling on the Penge East line a year or two ago. It seems they are sent out by distance computed from the line. Except it apparently didn't take into account it's in a tunnel for this stretch!

Re: When did West Hill become Westwood Hill please? I've not been able to find an answer online

Lawrie Park Gardens was formerly Westwood Road as described by the wooden road sign until it was replaced by the Lewisham fady blue variety (in the 1990s?). I presume the changes may be connected.

Re: The NHS COVID-19 app

It's worse that that JGD. It appears probable they were using XLS files (64K rows was as big as you would ever need in 1987), not the modern XLSX which can take a million. Spreadsheets, on a good day, are the IT equivalent of the back of an envelope. They are not databases. When mis-used as database...

Re: The NHS COVID-19 app

I think the answer is these rapid tests have, to date, been less accurate. There is a difference between someone passing through an airport who can be presumed negative until shown positive - and someone who is showing symptoms or been in close contact and should be assumed to be positive unless sho...
