    Evening mofos.

    Entertainment: "The Bruce Partington Papers", "The Hound of the Baskervilles", "War" on PBS, list last not including Sherlock Holmes or Dr. Watson, rather being the 13th ep of 14 about WWII, 1945, spring.

    Discoverd how inefficient gas lighting is:

    Can the aura of gaslight survive in the LED age? - Lux Review

    2 lumens/watt.

    And that's for a gas mantle.

    The fishtail burner was presumably even less efficient.

    According to this

    https://getd.libs.uga.edu/pdfs/ghosh...200405_mhp.pdf

    the early carbon filament lamps were almost as bad at 3 lumens/watt.

    It took the invention of the coiled coil gasfilled tungsten lamp to get it up to 12 lumens/watt.

    I read about one of the latest LED lamps which does 180 lumens/watt.

    Tonight’s main feature was a rewatch of the excellent Margin Call (2011), as it’s currently on BBC iPlayer, and the Beeb have gone to the trouble of providing the subtitles that the official releases have otherwise not bothered with. A cracking film

    And after that, I was inveigled by the iPlayer app’s suggestions into watching Panorama - Lockdown UK. I reckon this could come in handy for filmmakers seeking real-world footage to use in future adaptations of the first few chapters of certain John Wyndham novels

    I had the subjective impression that there seemed to be a bit more road traffic over the last couple of days, and that seemed to be confirmed by the graph showing an uptick at HMG’s press conference today. I hope that doesn’t mean more roadblocks before I get round to going to the shops for “essentials”

    Goodnight all

    I do like the A50. Often drive it from Derby to Stoke(M1 to M6) and vica-versa. I did not know it was the COV19 highway....

    They can afford it. They just don't give you lot any to stop the contractors spending most of the day in there...

    Sunrise around now. It is dry out - but clearly has rained overnight.
