05:44 pm: one of today's letting agents wanted an upfront fee to register with them before. who should i report them to? this has got to be illegal. but news is not entirely bad, as seeing flats tomorrow and tuesday in clapton and manor house respectively.

leicester looks nicer now. presence of river, parks and entire outer and inner ringroads good †. absence of hinckley road and narborough road bad. it's remarkable how much you can do with low-res satellite photos and the out-of-copyright NPE maps.

coming back for the weekend, hope to finish city centre. oh, and meet people...

† not that leicester has an entire outer ringroad, of course.

there's a small residential road that links the south east and south west end bits of the outer ring road via the Projects and Da Ghetto (rather like the inner ring road strangely enough) which i travel down every day in the hope of seeing weirdos on bikes to run over. Oh and to get to Market Harborough via the A6 but that's a secondary consideration :D

I think there was vague talk of a Market Harborough mapping party at some point, the place barely is mapped and would be quite doable in a weekend by 20 people. (they did Rutland!)

Totally illegal, don't do it.

"You'll need to come to our offices in Shepherd's Bush to register. The registration fee is X"

"What?"



"Um, isn't that illegal?"

"No..."

"Yes, actually I think it is. And even if it isn't then it certainly should be. I'm going to report you to Gumtree administrators as a first step, at least."

but was definitely worth checking out that site: thanks for the pointer.
