    Microsoft Edge problems with RC4 cipher

    Not at all, a search engine is just that. Personally I prefer using Bing as I earn Microsoft points which I can then cash out for a gift card every so often. On the home page there is always a photo of some beautiful scenery to look at too. Having my browsing history synced to my Microsoft...

    92s on third rail

    Could you elaborate further on this please? On the map I can’t see a way of leaving HS1 at Dagenham into Essex

    Buying second hand iPad

    If the iPad is blacklisted by the network you then you will still be able to use it on a Wi-Fi network as though it was a non-cellular model. Make sure the seller signs out of their iCloud account and turns off Find My iPad - if they say no or claim they don’t know how then stay away. Otherwise...

    Should younger children be required to socially distance?

    Do you have any evidence that the risks are as low as you claim? I fail to see how the risk however small is worth not worrying out compared to anything else. Why take a risk that can be avoided or minimised? My Aunt is a GP and has spoken to several children with the virus. I am sure none of us...

    Should younger children be required to socially distance?

    Well, it would appear there are 2 confirmed cases of primary school children having caught the virus. This is proof that young children CAN catch the virus and are not as invincible as many once thought. They may cope better then many adults although are carriers nevertheless. In light of this...

    376 at Ashford

    Could they be to re-instate the Ashford stopping services which used to exist 10 years ago? These were formerly run with Class 465s I believe so using another metro class such as 376s would make sense. This would allow 375s to be freed up to provide the express services promised in the...

    Trivia: Stations with the most platforms

    Personally I don’t think they should be included as that wouldn’t be comparing apples to apples. Tube stations are separate stations themselves. Hardly any big stations south of the Thames have a tube station anyway - not even Clapham Junction! However it is down to the OP to decide

    Victoria ticket worker dies after being spat on.

    What a nasty thing to do, especially during a pandemic. Telling someone you have the virus and then spitting says a lot about this person. Thoughts to the family for her loss. It is heart breaking to hear that someone was assaulted in this way whilst doing her job. Spitting is an offence for...

    Trivia: Stations with the most platforms

    Strictly speaking yes, although not physically. Waterloo East is technically only another part of the same station which to avoid confusion is why its platforms are lettered instead of numbered. It feels like another station because of the branding but still really the same place. Should we...

    Boris Johnson Announcement Discussion - 10/05/20

    Really sorry to hear about your friend, I can only begin to imagine how you feel. One of my closest friends committed suicide not long ago and I am still coming to terms with it. Hopefully you will have your choice back very soon. Telling children not to interact with each other is very...

    E-scooters could be legalised and extra funding for cycling

    Maybe so, whether cycling is an option really depends on where you live and work. On weekends of engineering/bus replacement works, I have on occasions cycled to Ramsgate (in almost a straight line) in as little as 48 minutes. The train takes 20 minutes so not that much slower. Not many people...

    E-scooters could be legalised and extra funding for cycling

    Legalising e-scooters is definitely something I agree with. As the owner of a manual scooter I have certainly saved an enormous amount of time over the years. Scooters do well to bridge the gap between cycling and walking and are easier to store too, making them perfect for commutors. Because...

    Boris Johnson Announcement Discussion - 10/05/20

    If there is even greater evidence of that then schools might open sooner than we think. Education is important, as is for children to develop social skills

    Boris Johnson Announcement Discussion - 10/05/20

    I am surprised that reception and year 1 will go back to school as they are the most difficult to keep apart Year 6’s I can understand as the last year of primary school is very important and they deserve the chance to see their class And teacher one final time to say goodbye - even if it is at...

    Peak restrictions during lockdown

    Quite the opposite it seems. I struggle to get anything under £60 on the day usually

    Is the chord that links HS1 towards Waterloo still in use?

    We might if they are done in a 395 or one of the other trains that support cab signalling. Personally I wouldn't mind a railtour from Ashford International down Fawkham Junction to Waterloo International for old times sake. Many people under 30 probably never travelled on Eurostar that way...
