As an HGV lorry loader driver currently commuting to Mitcham every day, I’m pleased that TP have made plans :)
In other words less lorry miles, less pollution, less congestion and greater productivity. What's not to like?

Windows 7 EOL next week

Just a reminder to the 27% or so still running Windows 7 that support ends next Tuesday 14th January. After that no security patches (unless you pay for them). Hence it will rapidy become unsafe if connected to the internet and a threat to us all. Windows 7 users have a choice: * Disconnect from the...

BeckenhamTown website closing

Just got this from Jon: With the growth and engagement of other social media channels and greater time spent on those sites BeckenhamTown.us has done its job, so it is time to call it a day.

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

Given that many people here know Chris to be a stranger to truth then what you say is unsurprising. Given that you deny the allegations, and if you were not honest you would be seriously shooting yourself in both feet - the more interesting question arises - "why is Chris tweeting this now?"

Re: Black cabbies in celebration.....

Also, the majority of Uber vehicles are hybrid, which can’t be said for black cabs. Correct. But all new black cabs are plugin hybrids which ought to make them more environmentally friendly. And having the rank system means they aren't driving round in polluting circles like Ubers waiting for the A...

Re: Replacing windows

I could do with a secondary whatever for a French double door which has a concrete lintel. How are the fixings put on since you're not supposed to drill into concrete (can cause stress fractures)? Magnetic systems should not be used on opening doors & windows as they could become detached if the do...

Re: Replacing windows

Good to hear of your experience Maestro especially as we have used the same product. SecondaryDIYGlazing is the consumer brand for Tubeway. Both supply Easyfix. The service was remarkable.

Re: Replacing windows

We don't have sashes but some rather nice leaded lights in beautifully crafted oak frames which would be a crime to trash. Instead we installed secondary glazing ourselves. Not as effective as double glazing but has an upside of being considerably cheaper and unobtrusive. Ours is a magnetic system w...

Re: Black cabbies in celebration.....

Having suffered from the same "we don't cross the river, mate" and the perambulating Ubers clogging and polluting central London I use our local minicab (Station Approach edition) if less environmentally hostile transport is not available. So a modest victory imho.

Re: Sydenham Info goes IPv6

A WHOIS of that ip address tells me you are with BT. So they, of all people, are doing IPv6. Well I never. Perhaps it's time to take it more seriously and roll it out to all our gasometer related websites!
