Grumble.
No wonder our NHS is up the creek without a paddle with its stupid wastage.
Since passing 60, received numerous appointments for various clinics.
The latest today, an invitation to participate in a study for ORION-4, a study of new treatments to prevent heart attacks & strokes.
Commendable.
The main issue I have with all "these" appointments is that they only have morning apts.
Fair enough.
This latest one is for Beford Hospital at 08:30, date doesn't matter here.
Okay as I do not own a car, to get there have to use public transport.
To get there on time, I have to catch a train from 06:10 to Leicester (opposite direction), change to the Kettering train for Bedford, arriving at 08:09.
Leaves 21 minutes to get to hospital the other side of the river.
Total cost approx. £93, call it £100 after coffees.
As a former postman, never knew 2nd class mail take so long.
19/10-1/11.

How was I selected for this "honour"?
An Automatic Electronic Search of the NHS Direct digital records & your records have been "securely" passed to the University of Oxford.
Ain't technology marvelous.

[Post Surgical Update:]

[Grumble:]

Knee is still 'tight' at the kneecap. Pain is moderate to low. The tightness makes more 'uncomfortable-ness'
than pain. In the early AM as I'm waking, it's at its worst. I try to wait 10 to 20 Min. to 'settle in' before taking
my first pain pill of the morning.

[Glory:]

Things are really moving forward in a constant positive direction. I took my first Post Surgical Shower
today. (WOOOHOOOO!!!! DE-STENCHIFIED!!!!!!) :-)

NOTE: I'm down to 9 pain pills left. I called the doctor's office, (prescription is marked 'No Refills'), to
obtain a refill of them. They are now working on re-authorizing the pain meds.

All-in-all, I think things are going pretty well. :-)

An observation. My main projects which have none of the work I normally do at the moment (CPDN and ARP tasks on WCG) slow down noticeably if I run on all 8 real cores on my Ryzen7. Once I finally figured out getting LHC to work using VB, running two 8 core tasks at once, there is only minimal slow down compared with running one 8 core Atlas task, I.E almost twice the throughput.

Grumbles been waiting 1 hour for the US$1.9 BILLION POWERBALL lottery results and finally find out why no numbers...
https://www.sacbee.com/news/lottery/article268406742.html
“Tonight’s Powerball drawing has been delayed due to a participating lottery needing extra time to complete the required security protocols,” California Lottery officials said in a social media post. “Powerball has strict security requirements that must be met by all 48 lotteries before a drawing can occur. When the required security protocols are complete, the drawing will be performed under the supervision of lottery security officials and independent auditors. “Winning numbers will be posted as soon as they are available. Thank you for your patience.

Grumble: commute to work today 2:45, normal day 0:30.

Several roadways were underwater on Tuesday. According to Caltrans, two hotspots were State Route 110 at Via Marisol near Highland Park, where flooding across all lanes led to stopped traffic. A vacuum truck was called in to clear the road, and all traffic was being diverted at Avenue 60, according to a spokesperson for Caltrans District 7, which includes Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.

Migrated from a slow ADSL connection (7 Mbit/s Down / 0.67 Mbit/s Up), to a 5G/4G Modem/router.
5G isn't available here yet though, only 4G. But the results with 4G is pretty good compared to ADSL.

Results: (93 Mbit/s Down / 27 Mbit/s Up)

My ADSL is about what yours was, a bit slower down and a bit faster up. 4G tethering my phone gives me a a 3-4 times increase. Don't know if a dedicated router would do better or not.

Grumble.

For Click & Collect orders, if your chosen pickup point is in the North West, North East, Yorkshire, the Isle of Man, Channel Islands or Scottish Highlands and Islands your order will take an additional working day to our stated delivery times.
First time I've seen Yorkshire included in the list of trackless outer fringes of the UK. Send huskies!
