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. I put in 3 orders. All were beautifully cut to size, despatched the following day and delivered the day after. ...

So sad indeed Mary. Good on you for spreading the word. Fingers crossed. Also a timely reminder to the rest of us to digitise our most precious so a copy exists that can shared with those closest to us without risk. I was thinking about that and bunging some on memory sticks as stocking filllers for...

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!

Sydenham Info goes IPv6

I have made https://sydenham.info available through IPv6. Most ISPs are still stuck on IPv4 which is a problem as we have run out of IPv4 addresses . However, your ISP may be an exception and you can tell if you are accessing Sydenham Info by ISPv4 or ISPv6 by looking under the IPv6 button for your ...

Re: Coop Forest Hill

It's a great location. There is very little competition within easy walking distance - so a captive market in the heavily populated zone between FH & Sydenham Sainsburys. Also parking is as good as it gets round there. Their strategy is, I think, to go for the places that Lidl/Aldi have left free as...

SYDENHAM !!! - according to The Sun.: https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/10378128/ ... 2019-2020/
Have they got ANY signal at the Dulwich Woodhouse yet?

But it may be an opportunity for folks who want a fast home/office internet connection without wires.

Re: Fatal Accident Outside Catford Station

Buses are actually the main cause of injury/death to cyclist, but of course TFL will not release that figure. Every cyclist death in London is well publicised - by the Evening Standard for a start. A friend of mine collected the statistics for a time. It's now out of date (as he returned to Germany...

JGD - I understand your pain but the statistics are not with you. When you have time do examine the details of each and every London's cyclist fatality. You will also see that the real problem is not HGVs in general but concentrated on a section of HGVs - primarily in the construction sector who are...
