Malvern is a small town sitting amidst some really nice walking country and having a few really nice eating and drinking places

Not sure the eating and drinking places are relevant from Thursday which was when we were going there.

Certainly worth doing - I was being optimistic and looking forward to the day when we don't have to be overly concerned with the Covid ramifications....

I second that - I dropped in on Malvern on my way back from Cornwall in September. I wasn't so impressed by the town - it was only a fly-by, so I didn't explore any of the eateries or hostelries, and parking was horrendous - but I escaped round the back of the hills and found plenty of open space for both parking and walking. The views from the top will make a tremendous comparison with Cambridgeshire!

#1 We do have hills. It is just that most people call them bridges.

#2 Hill. Noun. Anything above sea level.

Lol. Yes, I know you do - I cycled up several of them during my years as a student there.

Can I convert the bans into Boinc credits? Or perhaps a leaderboard for how many times people get told off?
There are no BOINC credits and you'll never manage to better the amount of bans Knut has gathered together.

Doesn't Knut have more bans than Mr. Spam by now?

No, Mr. Spam has several years advantage of Knut, but Mr. Spam isn't really one person. That I know of.

I and most people are fed up of the constantly changing "rules". I have always and will always do what I normally do. And I don't own a mask either. Any shop throwing me out will lose my custom permanently.

OK I get jt, puliblic health is not your reponsibily and changing conditions do not require different tactics,

They require the same tactics that were required five weeks ago. Sadly UK government ignored the scientific advice then.
