Re: Freeview reception problems?

I have experienced similar pixilation difficulties with "live" viewing and then found the recorded version to be perfectly clear. I am not at all sure why the equipment - and I am using different devices connected to different aerials - produce such varied qualities. Signal strength may be playing a...

Track and Trace - Where is the UK Now?

It is important that the country understands the importance of track and trace. Not as a solution but as a hugely important factor in mitigating the spread of infection. An interesting summary of events is to be found here: https://members.tortoisemedia.com/2020/10/05/201005-test-and-trace-slow-news...

Re: Flu-Jabs @ Sydenham Green now Covid test compatible

Yes, but has anyone tried booking a blood test recently? Received official notification from my surgery this morning: Due to a problem with supplies, it will not be possible to have most blood tests done for the time being, unless urgent. If you are due to have a blood test done, unless it is just ...

Re: The NHS COVID-19 app

On two iPhone 7Plus devices located in our home my BH and I received a notification at around 22:00 on our Home screens. The notification was fleeting and seemed to be informing or requesting of us a confirmation of a contact and seeking further info on duration and location. After a few seconds bei...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

Interesting material - all of it. So if the stuff I'm wading through is not directly related to the submissions as described in my earlier post, there is an awful lot of it. "the LPA are not required to publish statements but they must be available to view should someone wish to see them." Interesti...

Re: The NHS COVID-19 app

Simply unbelievable. We thought "Yes, Prime Minister" had taught us all we had to know about HMG cock-ups. How naïve. How little did we but know. From Stuart's same link at The Register : It added: "Of these, over 75 per cent (11,968) relate to cases that should have been reported between 30 Septemb...

Hi Zara Sorry to hear you can't load the app. I wonder what version of IoS you have on the iPhone 6? iPhone 6s/6s Plus can be updated to IoS Version 14 - which will work with the app. iPhone 6/6 Plus can be updated only to IoS Version 12 - which will not work with the app. The NHS support website sa...

Re: 254 new homes for Lower Sydenham decision no 6

A lot of interesting comments. I pass the site frequently by car - is the land accessible or is it fenced off and thereby prevents access to the land by the public? If it is fenced off what does the principle of Metropolitan Open Land (MOL) infer or grant in terms of access to the land? In law, it w...

Re: Sticky music thread

Superb choice - takes us back to the days of Saturday night television full of crooners like Val Doonican, Matt Monro, Roger Whitaker, Perry Como, Andy Williams - and just a little before that - Jim Reeves.

My mother thought The Bachelors were "hot" but she was in love with Jim Reeves.

Don't yet know - not encountered that situation yet.

But I will also say I will be disappointed if it causes my iPhone to deliver any form of electric shock- just by way of ensuring it got my attention.
