Last year for open data day we started our dive into fault categorisation, culminating in FaultCat :cat:.

For this year’s event we’re working on a new online game (current codename: MiscCat :smirk_cat:).

We’ll be using it to check through the devices that have been categorised as ‘Misc’ in the Fixometer - we think a lot of them can be categorised as something else. We’ll be investigating new electronic/electrical categories, and we’ll also be working with the categories for non-powered devices we’re currently adding in to the Fixometer. More details soon!


Tough luck for me! That’s the day our allotments have hired a skip — so I might be dealing with an epic pile of “miscellaneous” stuff left by the last plot holder. But I’ll join for a stretch remotely via mobile, to give me some relief from moving rubbish, to simply categorising not-yet-rubbish.

Here’s the size of our “Misc” category — as in The Times — over 1,000 Misc fixes :muscle:


Tickets available now! /cc’ing data delvers :slight_smile: @Data
