Re: Crystal Palace Park closure

Oh good, you mean it'll be over in 10 minutes? We'll be very relieved. I walked from Penge High Street to the station this afternoon, and got a real blast of it. I'm guessing that must be the best part of 3/4 of a mile away as the crow flies? I have a nasty feeling tomorrow's is going to be worse - ...

Re: Mad Dough

I fear they most likely will: similar goods and services, and very similar name. I'd go for them if I were Mama Dough. I don’t get to see any similarities between mamma dough and mad dough, there are many businesses with the trade name “dough” at the end. Similar goods and service? Not at all. Mamm...

Re: Helicopter last night

My first thought is always the air ambulance. I don't know what it was, but it was certainly going on for quite some time.

Re: Crystal Palace Park closure

Really appalling. But thanks for the reminder: can I borrow some noise-cancelling headphones for the weekend? (Will they be effective enough?!)

Re: Noise coming from (?) Crystal Palace Park?

Thanks, you were obviously more successful than I was. Although that event was today only, so it doesn't explain yesterday's. Or last weekend.

Noise coming from (?) Crystal Palace Park?

Can anyone tell me the source of the loud PA systems/music/bass beats which appear to have been coming from the direction of Crystal Palace Park this weekend (and last), please? I could be wrong about the source, given how strong the wind still is, but it was on until around midnight last night, and...

Re: Dartmouth Rd closure

Out of interest, now this has all been done and presumably settled down, how is the new layout working (or not)?

Re: Forest Hill Pools

Ah yes, the ages(decades?)-old problem associated with contracting-out: bodies quote low to try and secure the contract, and then once it starts they realise they can't actually operate/pay staff a living wage/pay for decent staff etc. at that level :( I can't help wondering if we'd be in a worse si...

Re: Freeview reception problems?

I thought ITV was from a different transmitter?

Anyway, fingers crossed, it seems to be okay again, but I'll keep an eye on things. And yes, I do have an internal aerial - metal ring. Never had a problem with it in the past 6 years or so.

Re: Freeview reception problems?

Picture's been horrendous (as in totally unwatchable/unlistenable) tonight on the BBC Channels, and I think London Live and Channel 4, less bad on More4. ITV seems unaffected. Is this generally the case, or is it just my TV?

Re: Freeview reception problems?

Actually, I'm starting to wonder whether it doesn't like the HD recorder I've temporarily got plugged into it. I'll see if the problem persists into next week.

Freeview reception problems?

A couple of times recently, we've turned on the TV to find a message saying that there is no signal detected. We're in line-of-sight to the Crystal Palace transmitter. Is anyone else having the same problem, or is it just us?
