Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

From my GP's website: "We will be administering the first COVID-19 vaccinations (Pfizer BioNTech) to 975 of our most vulnerable patients from Weds 6th January, at Chesham Town Hall.

Re: Any thoughts of an alternative to endomondo?

Endomondo also did PB tracking over time much better than anyone else - on the desktop version anyway. Which for someone who has spent the year running and losing weight rather than cycling was a boost. UA's MapMyRide etc is shit for me, but it's ok for route plotting.

Re: Facebook Account Hacked

Very successful, and surprisingly crude. Because I don't usually log in to FB Messenger I saw nothing odd in being asked to confirm my ID! I have now changed a number of important passwords - just in case. It was noticeable that Zuckerberg's magic garden (a) was very clunky in the way it suggested I...

Belated Happy Birthday. I trust a good dinner was involved?
