Blog ≫ 2004 ≫ Oyster Card problem at Liverpool Street

It's not a nice situation When oystercards go bad, like today at Liverpool Street... a huge delay at the ticket barrier (well a few seconds anyway), everyone behind is cursing the person at the front of the queue for forgetting that their ticket has expired or whatever, then the cursors become the cursee when they get to the front and realise the Oyster Card reader isn't working. Is this the beginning of the end???

It's pissing down and horrible outside today. Going to spend the day doing some rewriting of my search term and referer reporting, and making a start on the online holiday form thing.

PopEx control panel looks broken too, I think it's a problem with cached issues, needs some serious digging.
