Re: Catflaps - let's drag this back to IT...
My cat would just keep hammering at the locked catflap until it flexed sufficiently to spring open. No way would it have hindered a badger.

In a company I worked for, there were sufficiently many people in this situation that a new technical grade was created, on a management pay level, to accommodate them. However after many years, changes of CEO, and reorganisations, that arrangement was lost in the mists of time and my role gradually mutated into the people management position I didn't want, without any advancement on the pay scale. I think most (if not all) of the others subject to the same arrangement had left by then.
Yeah but there are surely plenty of other places in the UK where the same is true, this terrible performance indicator isn't for Trimley(s) as a whole, its for one mostly unpopulated lane, leading to a farm - which is why I think it is the result of a particularly small sample.
Thorpe Lane isn't far from me - I live in Felixstowe. If you check the satellite view on Google Maps (or map provider of your choice) you'll see that there are very few houses, so I'm wondering how many broadband-connected premises made up the sample from which the average was derived - there might have been only one, with a misconfigured router or some other anomaly. The Trimleys (there are two - St. Martin and St Mary) also aren't a million miles from BT's Adastral Park, so there's plenty of broadband expertise in the area :-) Disclaimer: between 1997 and 2014 I worked for BT, but not involved in broadband provision, and not interested in defending any ISP's reputation.
