Various comments for tangy!

Post by DavidC »

Hello tangy. Many thanks for updating the ExplorerTicket site last month - my apologies for only just noticing.

The text says Zone 1 and South London have been updated for Battersea/NLE but, despite various attempts at refreshing, I can't see a reset for Zone 1 (including my time from January). Am I doing something silly or failing to do something intelligent?!

Are there any plans for introducing any new challenges and/or resetting any existing challenges when you-know-what opens later this month? I know the Elizabeth Line isn't a tube line, but I wondered whether there were any interchange or demise-of-TFLRail or Overground implications, plus of course any new Elizabeth Line specific challenges in the offing.

I have been wondering about doing a (non-Guinness) FNC. Is there an ExplorerTicket category for FNCs that are deemed acceptable here regardless of Guinness? I couldn't see one but maybe I should go to Specsavers!

Thanks again for all you do with adjudicating and administering all the alternative challenges.

I was certainly considering attempting an EL Challenge once the line opens. However the record will re-set when Bond Street opens, and possibly also when Terminal 4 reopens. Additionally of course, the challenge will become much easier when through running is established.

At the risk of sending this thread off course (I'm interested in seeing my Z1 time on the official table too!), one EL challenge could possibly be going Abbey Wood to Paddington or vice versa passing through all stations but never using the EL itself?

Doesn't any more.

Incidentally Chrome won't currently let me access ExplorerTicket. I get the message:

NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID

Works OK on Microsoft Edge though.

This sis due the expiration of the SSL certificate for my domain (which tells the browser the domain is safe and secured) thus will not currently open as a HTTPS:// webpage.

I am going through the motions with my domain provider to renew the certificate. Should be sorted in a few days.
