  • Both the new wine bars are good in different ways.
  • Ali, are you quite sure it was mostly single track? That's contrary to track diagrams that I've seen.

  • Yeah they do the job. Don't go to every national rail platform yet but you can get to the southbound underground just fine.
  • I am a bit worried that transferring platforms would mean we lost all the site's posting history.
  • Thanks for the tip, I'll do some research. I'm rather hoping that there's a plug-and-play system these days, with modules that you can trust to work.
  • The platform is Vanilla. I suspect that ought to change though, I think there are easier to manage ones out there now, and the various modules which used to add functionality mostly just break the site these days!

  • Mmm yeah that's all out of date. We lost a lot of functionality with the last upgrade. You can link to a picture, but people will need to click through to it rather than it appearing on the site. Twitter links do appear though! At some point so…

  • Nice to see you still miss the point at every opportunity, Kreuzkav.

  • Absolutely delighted that my name is now associated with senior moments. It's the legacy I've been hoping for all these years.
  • No. And I was just staring at the sign ten minutes ago.
  • It does, though I think they've over-egged it with with the plywood perma-awning. It looks like a planning violation to me. Re Baccus, has anyone noticed that they have totally ripped off OakN4's branding? OakN4: http://oakn4.co.uk/ Bacchus: http…
  • All three places mentioned in Twinspark's post are in Haringey. I think you have your map upside down.
  • Lot of love for you here Ned, keep up the amazing work.

  • There's another thread somewhere about the mystery opposite Max's. I suspect it was just converted into residential and now they've been busted so there's no point hiding it behind curtains.
  • I can confirm that Lawrence is a real person. I do think that promoting an overseas-owned commercial platform over a long-established local one isn't very community-spirited.

  • This thread made me laugh: https://twitter.com/JJFromTheBronx/status/1118906330197176320 I'm imagining how much grief someone would get if they asked for that here.
  • It's just the usual breathing in and out of London's lungs. Poor migrants move in to a poor area with cheap accommodation and good commerical opportunities, make their money, assimilate and move out to the suburbs or the countryside (or the Old Coun…
  • Was it Öcalan's face? He tends to get a good airing at Newroz. I get the impression that Green Lanes is more Kurdish than ethnic Turkish these days. And those Kurds come from all over Turkey but a lot of them from Diyakabir and other parts of the e…
