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...

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. A combined Covid/Defibrillator app? Cool, but would it need a better battery? Otherwise: "I'm sorry but there is insufficient charge to perform ...

Re: 5G rollout

5g is about far more than phones. It will provide a third speedy alternative to Virgin cable or Openreach lines for domestic or business Internet. Also provide the capacity for the expected explosion of the Internet of Things (IoT) in tomorrow's world. The very high frequencies used are great for sp...

Re: The NHS COVID-19 app

I don't think this shortcoming is as serious as it appears at first sight. The ONS tests are random and hence will only have a very small hit rate. Much smaller than when COVID-19 is suspected which is covered by pillar 1 (PHE/NHS) and pillar 2 (Independent labs). Pillar 2 are OK with the App - whic...

Where would you prefer it to be positioned?. Or are you against the option of having 5G alternatives to Openreach lines and Virgin cable?
